The XV edition of the Master on Gender and Development
This XV edition of the program caters to the development and international cooperation field’s rising demand for professionals with a strong theoretical foundation and applicable knowledge of gender studies by providing students with first-rate academic instruction and a hands-on work experience in Spain, Latin America, Asia, Maghreb, or Sub-Saharan Africa.
The academic part of the program consists of three complementary educational activities: single-subject courses, workshops, and international seminars. Program faculty consists of academics and professionals from universities and research centers, international organizations, developmental NGOs, and public administrations.
Academic standards are typical of a post-graduate degree; instruction goes beyond practical training by exploring theoretical foundations and doctoral content through the program’s multidisciplinary lens. All of these activities are addressed from a gender perspective and culminate in a three to four month internship abroad. This year’s professional experience is funded by the Spanish Cooperation and International Development Agency (AECID) and carried out in its partner countries.
