Course description

This course will provide an understanding of the principal ways in which critical social inquiry and participatory processes can be applied to the design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of development activities. Graduates of the Master of Applied Anthropology and Participatory Development (MAAPD) program will have the knowledge and skills to gain an understanding of trends and changes in development theory and practice as they apply to local development processes; to apply critical social inquiry and participatory processes to the design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of development activities; to undertake social assessments and integrate social perspectives and participatory practices with other forms of technical expertise in development work and to advise on the development policy processes of NGOs, the private sector, government, and multilateral agencies to ensure the inclusion of local and community perspectives. It is designed for those who have developed an interest in the application of anthropology’s critical methods and styles to social issues in development. It is designed for people working in government, non-government organizations, or as independent consultants. On completion of the program MAAPD graduates will be better able to manage development projects, including undertaking social assessment and advising on their cultural and social impacts.
