Что я буду изучать?

The Master’s in Development Practice (MDP): Indigenous Development teaches the skills required to be a successful practitioner of sustainable development in Canada and abroad. Indigenous knowledge and experience are at the core of the innovative curriculum that cuts across health, management, natural and social sciences.

This unique inter-disciplinary program – housed in the University’s Global College – is eminently practical. Problem-solving, case studies, group projects and critical self-reflection are emphasized and in-class assignments are designed to build the skills needed to be an effective development practitioner. With two three-month field placements - one in Canada and one international - students have the opportunity to put their learning into practice, gain important development experience and establish important connections with organizations engaged in Indigenous development around the world.

Students in the program complete several required courses and two field placements; they choose additional coursework from a list of approved electives or opt to complete a major research project. The expected time to graduate is 24 months (full-time) or 48 months (part-time).

SAMPLE CAREERS

MDP graduates are sought after in all sectors of sustainable development, including international, government, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector. Graduates obtain managerial, policy development and or EDO positions while others continue on to doctoral programs across Canada and abroad. Potential career paths include program officer, community development consultant, program coordinator, policy advisor/ analyst, and researcher. Possible employers may include; Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada, Canadian Red Cross, Manitoba Sustainable Development, City of Winnipeg and Indigenous organizations such as First Nations Health and Social Secretariat of Manitoba.

SAMPLE COURSES

INDIGENOUS THOUGHT AND WORLDVIEWS: SUSTAINABLE UNDERSTANDINGS brings the student into ceremonies, discussions, research, and conceptualizations exercises which enable them to begin understanding Indigenous thought and worldviews, particularly of the Anishinaabe and the Dakota. The course provides tools and opportunities for students to free themselves from ethnocentric thinking while being educated in the nodal thinking of the Anishinaabe people. The course is experiential and follows the teachings of the annual round of seasonal activities. The course helps the student gain insights into the core concepts of sustainable development, global sustainability, earth stewardship, and self-determination through Indigenous perspectives.

INDIGENOUS RESEARCH METHODS provides a review of the movement towards the decolonization of the Western model of research and the revitalization of indigenous research frameworks and methodologies. The course also offers analysis of Western research methods and both their histories in colonial practices as well as their potential usefulness in indigenous community-based development research and applications.
