These are exciting times at ComDev again! The spring semester with more than 100 students across all our courses is well underway and we are looking forward to our next teaching seminar in April where we will focus on participatory development with a group of Malmö and external colleagues!
As we publish this note, two students from the 2-year MA are on their way to Lebanon to work with ComDev professors Ronald Stade and Oscar Hemer on a project with the UNICEF country office-so there are many reasons why you should consider applying for ComDev-or returning as a graduate for the 2-year MA!
The spring application window for ComDev’s programs and courses is open from 15 March – 15 April and we are once again looking forward to receiving your application.
Our 1-year flagship online blended learning MA program
Based on our initial experiences and the strong competition for spaces we strongly encourage you to submit a letter and strengthen your application!
The MA program is a 50% full-time course taught in our online blended learning ‘glocal classroom’ that we have pioneered, improved and enhanced for more than 15 years! ComDev program coordinator Tobias Denskus recently introduced the ‘Glocal Classroom’ in the context of the university’s internationalisation efforts.
You can also read what graduates from the course have said about ComDev. We just uploaded three more profiles in connection with the ComDev experiences in the United Nations system and a portrait of one of our pioneering graduates from 2002!
The 2-year MA course package to study 60 more ComDev credits
For those of you who already completed 60 ComDev credits, the 2-year MA is now an easy-to-apply-to course package and you will find all the details on the 2-year MA page.
Advances in ComDev free-standing 15 credit course
And finally, our Advances in Communication for Development: Social Action, Planning and Evaluation course will be available again in the autumn. The course is part of the 2-year MA, but it can also be taken separately as part of your on-going professional development or a great way to get to know ComDev better!
Please note that all applications have to be made through Sweden’s central university admissions website and that we only evaluate the letters of intent and not other parts of your application. University admission should always be your first point of contact regarding application matters, including formal qualifications or language requirements.
However, our colleagues at Malmö University admissions (admissions(at)mah.se) and our course administrator Åsa Ulemark can be contacted for technical questions regarding your application as well – and you can also get in touch with the ComDev team at comdev(at)mah.se – just allow a few days for replying individually during this busy period of the semester.
We are looking forward to your applications and welcoming you to Malmö in September 2017!
Tobias Denskus & the ComDev team
