Refugees, Education and Development (811X3)

30 credits, Level 7 (Masters)

Spring teaching

This module brings together the fields of refugee studies and education, focusing on policy and practice in both formal and non-formal settings, and at all stages in the life cycle.

You’ll consider the concept of ‘refugee’ and its derivatives, before critiquing how education is implicated in the incorporation or exclusion of refugees from national citizenry.

You’ll engage with international policies relating to refugees and education, as well as different methodological and theoretical perspectives that illuminate refugees’ diverse experiences in both the global north and south.
