UCD: Equality Studies Masters Programme


Equality Studies at UCD

Do you want to change the world? So do we

Applications are invited for the Equality Studies Masters programme at the School of Social Policy, Social Work and Social Justice, University College Dublin

The MSc in Equality Studies offers a unique opportunity to examine global equality issues from a range of perspectives and disciplines. The programme was designed for those who wish to develop an interdisciplinary understanding of global social justice issues and explore strategies for change. Topics covered include capitalism and social class, patriarchy and gender and the oppression of minorities, including those based on race, ethnicity, sexuality, and disability. Throughout, students are encouraged to explore the theory and practice of achieving egalitarian social change. Drawing students from across the globe, the course emphasizes the relationship of theory to practice with a view to bringing about positive social change.

Students also gain from undertaking engaged academic research, which includes researching and designing an equality-related intervention or action. The learning environment is student-centred and participatory, with students from a wide range of backgrounds, including community activists, development practitioners, educators and journalists.

Equality Studies graduates work in multiple fields including politics, journalism, law, education, public policy, voluntary and community work, and human rights advocacy. Our graduates have gone on to careers in organisations including the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission, the Red Cross, Marriage Equality, the Irish Refugee Council, Community Action Network, Google, Inclusion Ireland, Free Legal Aid Council, Spun Out and many more.
