MA Participation, Power and Social Change at IDS
Linking practice, theory and reflection

We are actively recruiting now for the next intake of the MA in Participation, Power and Social Change at IDS (starting in October 2011). MAP is a unique 18-month programme providing experienced development workers and social activists with the opportunity to critically reflect on their practice and develop their knowledge and skills while continuing to work or volunteer for most of this period.

The course combines academic study, practical experience and personal reflection. Students carry out an action research project related to their work, inquiring into the challenges of participation and power relations, reflecting on their actions and assumptions, and exploring what it means to facilitate change.

Students come from a wide range of professional backgrounds, including community organisations, NGOs, social movements, governments, businesses and consultancies. They work on diverse issues such as agriculture, health, HIV-AIDS, natural resources, climate change, youth, gender, community development, governance, communication, planning, evaluation and policy-making, among others.

A core component of MAP is the 12-month period of work-based learning in which students examine issues in their own practice and use the findings to benefit their organisation. This is complemented by two intensive 10-week terms at IDS introducing key concepts, methods and tools for action research and analysis, and including group reflection, individual supervision and the opportunity to take a specialised course.

Entry requirements include 3-5 years of relevant work experience, an acceptable first degree or equivalent academic qualification, and English at a minimum grade 7 overall in IELTS test (or equivalent).

Thanks for spreading the word and let us know if you have any questions.
