MA in Gender and Development
The program is based on the primary objective of educating qualified persons in the field of gender and development who can act as change agents within society and institutions at the local, state, and federal levels within Ethiopia. The programme is expected to widen the students’ theoretical and conceptual understanding of gender, development, legal and cultural issues. The programme is designed to equip students with the required knowledge so that they will take gender considerations into account in making policies and designing projects as well as in implementing, monitoring and evaluating policies.
The program is designed not only to produce graduates who are aware and knowledgeable about gender related issues, but also to produce graduates who are motivated and qualified to produce research in the field of gender and development. The overall aim is to achieve collective change within Ethiopian society and institutions towards gender mainstreaming and auditing, by producing well qualified graduates to perform these roles. In addition to this the program will provide short term trainings to key personalities having related posts. It will also work towards incorporating Gender in the curriculum as a common course.
In order to earn the Master’s degree, graduate students must take at least thirty two (32) credit hours, which encompass the four key component areas of the program. Candidates must get a passing score, i.e. “B” grade, but a “C” score could also be a passing grade as long as the candidate scores an “A” grade in other courses. In addition, candidates must earn an overall cumulative GPA of at least 3.00 in order to graduate.
Finally, students must complete a Master’s thesis approved by internal or external examiners with a minimum evaluation of satisfactory.
