Degree: Master of Arts and Social Science (60 credits) with a major in Adult Learning.

Teaching language: English

In every part of the world, governments are urging citizens to train or educate themselves for competition in the global economy.

Advocates of this argument claim that regional or local trade arrangements are no longer viable in a world where connective technologies can move influence, resources and purchasing power with a simple mouse click. Critical discourses on globalisation, however, require an ability to learn in situations that span vast cultural and geographic divides. And working globally sometimes calls for “fluency” in several cultures.

Four universities
This programme design is unique in the sense that four universities in four different continents collaborate. These are Linköping University, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, University of Western Cape, Cape Town and Monash University, Melbourne.

Graduates of the programme will:

Learn and teach globally
Use global connective technologies
Understand knowledge-based societies and the implications for learning
Understand globalisation discourses
Develop cultural sensibilities and sensitivities
Develop an equality perspective to learning, and reframe their own professional practices
The programme is intended for adults who need to understand learning and global change. The content will benefit people working in formal educational settings, business and industry, activist organisations, governments, non-governmental organisations, healthcare and numerous other settings where discourses of globalisation are changing people’s lives.

Distance learning
The mode of delivery is on-line distance learning with no campus-based meetings. Students must have reliable and regular e-mail and internet access.

This is a one year course but further studies are possible, resulting in a two-year master’s degree.

Specific requirements
A bachelor's degree, including a bachelor’s essay or project, with a major in education, adult learning or other subject relevant to the field of adult learning.

Each applicant must enclose a Letter of Intent written in English, explaining why they want to study this programme, and a summary of their bachelor’s essay or project. If applicants hold a degree that does not include a bachelor’s essay or project, their Letter of Intent should describe previous studies and any academic activities that are related to the master’s programme or the programmes applied for.

Applied ethics is a growing interdisciplinary field that studies ethical issues in different areas such as: politics, medicine, research, technology, as well as different forms of professional ethics. Questions such as global justice, implications of new technology in healthcare concerning life and death, environmental responsibility for future generations are some of the issues that applied ethics is dealing with. The subject has its disciplinary basis in moral philosophy and ethics but requires also area knowledge and expertise in different fields of application.

The programme offers a complementary education on master’s level in applied ethics for students already holding a bachelor’s degree in different fields, from philosophy to health and technology, or a professional degree. The aim of the programme is to offer students the opportunity to pursue advanced studies in applied ethics.

The master’s programme in Gender Studies - Intersectionality and Change prepares students to act as agents for change, i.e. to actively change, develop and challenge existing norms and structures in academic careers in higher education, as well as in national and international organisations, media, communication or politics.

The programme focuses on intersectional gender, i.e. gender in interplay with other social categorizations and power differentials such as ethnicity, class, nationality, sexuality, age, (dis)ability etc. The programme will give you the opportunity to explore how processes of social and cultural change can be initiated or sustained by integrating a critical understanding of intersectional gender, by counteracting multiple inequalities and processes of discrimination, and by other kinds of transformative work.

The aim is to provide students with knowledge of theories and methodologies in Gender Studies - Intersectionality and Change, and to enable them to develop academic skills to analyse and to intervene innovatively and professionally in gendered and intersectional processes of transformation in society.

The programme builds on international research traditions. It is linked to the excellent and internationally renowned milieu for intersectional gender research at the Unit of Gender Studies, Linköping University. This is one of the largest interdisciplinary research and teaching units for Intersectional Gender Studies in the Nordic countries with a staff of more than 30 researchers, including four full professors and many PhD students.

The programme is innovative in its cutting edge approach to intersectional gender research and teaching, as well as in its strong focus on professional development and career paths. It combines online distance education with intensive on-campus seminars. The programme is also offered to the students as a campus-based education. More traditional pedagogical formats are mixed with those that focus on written and spoken performances which challenge traditional boundaries between academic and creative writing, speaking and intervening.

The programme is designed for both Swedish and international students with a bachelor’s degree in humanities or social sciences. Students attending the programme have different educational or professional backgrounds.
