MA Anthropology and Development
2005

Working as a mature student in the evenings takes a lot of commitment and I was delighted with the first rate support I got from Maynooth University. ​I found the discipline difficult to study at first while studying for the Postgraduate Certificate, but some of the lecturers encouraged me to undertake the MA as they felt my area of interest (indigenous uses and adaptation of electrical and renewable technologies) was under researched and ground-breaking. This resulted in an MA in Anthropology and Development focusing on technology deployment within the developing world
