Masters in Social Justice and Community Action
The University of Edinburgh
The MSc in Social Justice and Community Action is a new part time and fully online masters programme designed to equip you with the knowledge and practical skills to make positive social change.
Our life chances are shaped by our family and community relationships, access to good quality public services and the features of our governing institutions.
Even though billions of people do not have the opportunity to live safe and healthy lives, there is little consensus about what actions individuals, groups and nation states should take to address these injustices.
This programme offers you the opportunity to critically engage with foundational ideas and debates about equality, fairness, power, democracy and citizenship and to consider a range of actions in communities, in policy and legislation processes and in organisations for the real world application of these ideas.
Who should study this programme?
This programme is designed for both:
- professionals working on social justice issues in research, policy or grassroots practice in the public, private or nongovernmental sectors across the globe;
- recent graduates who wish to gain the skills to enter the social justice field.
