Best Part time Masters in Social Sustainability Studies 2017/2018. This trilingual Master of Arts focusses on the potentials of local communities and economies, and on how to unfold them in a globalized world. Eco-Social Design is not only about more eco-efficient products and services, but is striving for more social good and good life with less material goods. Design is a catalyst of change. Cornerstones and characteristics Designers can help to envision and enable resilient projects locally, which can be adapted elsewhere – multiplied and networked globally. We use the region that we are placed in – the alps – to practice and teach ways of working, which can be applied in other regions, too. The Master enables young creative professionals to design for sustainable practices of production, consumption and living. With this aim the design of products, interactive applications and communications are approached as an integrated task. Students learn to work on design projects equipped with a transdisciplinary set of instruments beyond design, gathered from social and environmental sciences, economics and business, technology and crafts. Teaching and learning are organized in in multidisciplinary projects, where theory and practice are integrated in order to deal with complex questions and develop effective “answers” through the means of design. The master’s program works across several fields of design and provides possibilities to specialize in specific design disciplines, skills and/or areas of application. You will collaborate in teams, in beautiful spaces, and with external experts and stakeholders. The Faculty provides an environment that... [-]

Master of Global Human Development (MGHD)

Georgetown University - SFS - School of Foreign Service
Campus 2 years January 2018 USA Washington DC

Master of Global Human Development (MGHD) prepares students—through coursework, co-curricular activity and a summer field assignment—to understand the challenges of development and provides them with the tools and experience to address those challenges as successful professionals. [+]

Best Part time Masters in Social Sustainability Studies 2017/2018. The Master of Global Human Development is an innovative, academically rigorous skills-based graduate program that is designed to prepare the next generation of development professionals to work with public sector agencies, private businesses, and non-profit organizations involved in the sector. Through coursework, extra-curricular activity and a practical field work experience students understand the challenges of development and develop the knowledge, skills and experiences necessary to become leaders in their field, and make a difference in our global community. About the Program One billion people today still live in extreme poverty. Reducing world poverty and promoting growth and development in poor countries are among the major challenges and opportunities of the 21st century. Bringing about this change has never been more urgent or more prominent in public discourse on international relations, or in the priorities of graduate students considering their future careers. Since the early 1990s, development practitioners and policy makers have significantly evolved in their views of what constitutes "development" -- from an exclusive focus on metrics of economic growth and poverty reduction to a more holistic sense of "human development." Nobel laureate Amartya Sen is best known for his pioneering work on the need for a more inclusive framework that promotes human flourishing in the fullest sense, including broadening people's choices, allowing them the freedom to achieve what they value and the development of their individual capacities to achieve human dignity. The goal of the Master of Global Human Development... [-]
