About the Program

The Master of Arts in Social and Development Studies (MASDS) is a graduate degree program that utilizes approaches from various social science disciplines to analyze the problems and issues of development. Development is a complex process that brings about change not only in the economy, but also in the politics, culture, and ecology of a society. This has found strong affirmation from the varied experiences of peoples in different countries across regions of the world. The program of study follows the lead of scholars of development studies who harness social science theory together with empirical and policy analysis to provide a better understanding of the process of development.

The MASDS is suited to BA/BS degree holders with sufficient background in the social sciences (anthropology, psychology, history, philosophy, economics, political science) and intend to join government and non-governmental institutions engaged in the planning and design of social and economic development at local, national, or international levels.

Program Rationale

  1. In Northern Luzon, there is a limited number of graduate programs in social sciences.
  2. Regional offices, agencies, schools, and communities need graduates of social sciences degrees to implement social and development programs, provide consultancy, and train personnel.
  3. Faculty and staff in the region’s higher educational institutions (HEIs) need opportunities for professional advancement, including the possibility to obtain an advanced social sciences degree from a Commission on Higher Education (CHED) – approved Delivering Higher Educational Institution (DHEI) Program for Graduate Scholarships like the MASDS.
  4. Academically-oriented college graduates and development practitioners in the region who seek a graduate degree in the social sciences will benefit from a program that advances the holistic and interdisciplinary analysis of social and development issues.
  5. Technical knowledge must be guided by an understanding of the cultural and social context of development. The program stresses the paramount significance of the systematic study of sociocultural structures as opposed to the purely technical interpretation of development.
  6. The response to the problems of particular communities in Northern Luzon requires a systematic social science approach to development issues rather than the approach of a narrow disciplinal specialization.

Course Structure

To obtain the degree, the student completes 36 units (including 6 units of master’s thesis or 3 units of seminar paper) and passes a comprehensive examination. The degree allows for a thesis or a non-thesis option.
