The new deadline to apply for the Master of Arts in Communication for Social and Behaviour Change offered by the Caribbean Institute of Media and Communication at the University of the West Indies Mona Campus is August 31, 2012 for January 2013 enrolment.
The MA in Communication for Social and Behaviour Change is a part-time programme that runs for two calendar years. It is open to anyone interested in creating and implementing behaviour change programmes as well as in guiding policy decisions through behaviour change research.
The programme seeks to provide opportunities for students to address present global issues, ranging from the environment, climate change and disaster preparedness, raising awareness levels of the crisis of HIV and AIDS and developing responses to it, as well as other social and developmental issues.
“This master’s programme, which is the only one offered in the Caribbean, is innovative, timely and relevant to the needs of the entire region,” said Dr. Anthea Henderson, Lecturer and Coordinator of graduate programmes at CARIMAC.
To gain entrance into the MA in Communication for Social and Behaviour Change applicants must have at least a Second Class Honours Degree from a recognised university, or other academic or professional qualifications deemed to be equivalent by the Admissions Committee.
