Apply to our MA in Communication for Development & Advances in C4D course!

Hi all,

As most of you know, I have a fantastic 'day job' at Malmö University in Southern Sweden.

Right now, applications are open for both our flagship online two-year, part-time MA in Communication for Development and our new, professional course Advances in Communication for Development: Social Action, Planning and Evaluation, both starting in January 2016.

There is plenty of information available on our official ComDev portal
for both courses!

Master in Communication for Development
60 ECTS)

The MA in Communication for Development (ComDev) is web-based programme running part-time over two years. During the first year, students receive a comprehensive overview of globalisation and an introduction to the field of Communication for Development. In the second year, students are introduced to the theory and practice of new media and ICT in a development context and receive a thorough introduction to research methodologies in order to prepare them for their thesis.
From the start, the backbone of the programme has been a pedagogical approach referred to as Convergence Pedagogy. The concept was coined and is continuously developed by the ComDev staff and utilises the advantages that the online environment offers in terms of students connecting with fellow students around the world mixed with onsite seminar weekends where students get a chance to meet and interact in person. Lectures and seminars are planned to allow students participating in different time zones. This learning environment, based on the group dynamic that potentiates the participants’ own resources, is described as the Glocal Classroom and allows students based around the globe to interact and conduct group assignments with their peers.

Advances in C4D (part-time, 15 ECTS)
Advances in Communication for Development: Social Action, Planning and Evaluation is a new Malmö University course specifically tailored for Development and Communication professionals. Aimed at those who wish to enhance their skill-set and strengthen the academic foundations supporting their professional practice.

Advances in Communication for Development is a fully accredited 15 credit Malmö University course. Taught part-time over one term the course is specifically structured to accommodate demanding work schedules and complement day-to-day professional practice. The course for the spring semester will run between mid-January and the beginning of June 2016.
