DescriptionEducation, learning and knowledge continue to grow in importance. They are widely considered to be prime drivers of global mobility and of the processes of equal opportunity, economic development and citizenship – in the North as well as the South. The MA in Anthropology of Education and Globalisation aims to provide students with the competencies necessary to work with the important topics of education, learning and knowledge in an increasingly globalised world.
The programme is designed for students seeking an advanced training in anthropological approaches to educational practice and process in settings as varied as educational institutions, workplaces, and civil society. The teaching faculty – who are all active researchers – promote fruitful dialogue between the anthropological and educational traditions of enquiry, resulting in new arenas of study. Using ethnographic research methods and cross-cultural comparisons, the programme analyses specific (local) practices of education and knowledge in relation to broader (global) social and cultural contexts.
The programme provides a unique platform for exploring an array of traditional and less usual educational themes and sites across the globe: childhood socialisation and education; educational migration, multiculturalism and new forms of citizenship; global educational policy processes; the production and politics of knowledge; workplace learning, leadership and governance; welfare pedagogy; and religion and education.
Career OpportunitiesEducation and life-long learning are of growing global importance. In educating students to embrace a global perspective with an in-depth understanding of how education, learning and knowledge are negotiated and managed in everyday life in differing settings across national and cultural boundaries, the programme is aimed at an internationally oriented labour market.
