Comment Maynooth University is home to the only department of anthropology in the Republic of Ireland. Our department was established in 1983 and since then has gained an international reputation for the quality of its research and the teaching and learning experience it provides.
Course Content The Postgraduate Certificate in Anthropology & Development is a one-year part-time course designed for development and humanitarian aid professionals (and those who envisage such a career) who would like to add an anthropological perspective to their development expertise. The course provides a holistic and critical approach to culture, the inevitable context of all relief and development activity.
Subjects Taught Course Structure
The course consists of four consecutive 6-week modules, offered on Tuesday evenings, plus two Saturday workshops featuring guest scholars who bring critical perspectives to development issues.
