We are excited to announce that our MA in International Development will be even more practical and relevant for students in the future. For those wishing to gain experience in the international development field, from September 2020, participants on the MA in International Development will be offered an opportunity to avail of a work placement as part of their programme of study at Maynooth University. This experience is designed to give participants hands-on experience of working in an NGO or community-based organisation on international development and human rights issues.
We also have two new modules focused on community and policy responses to climate change. These modules on environment and sustainable development policy and advocacy and on global food systems, climate change and development will offer students an opportunity to further specialise in the area of international development responses toglobal climate change and sustainability challenges.
