The Master of Social Sciences (Gender and Development) is the first of its kind offered in Rwanda to national and international students. The program is of an international standard with faculty drawn from within and outside Rwanda, including visiting professors, policy makers, and practitioners in the field of gender. The course is based on a feminist approach to teaching and learning. In this form, students and faculty engage in the co-creation of knowledge through a collaborative process of building community in each of the course modules. Students engage in small group discussions, learning dialogues, case studies that cover international and local relevant issues in the modules. Class discussion and dialogue form the central pedagogical approach to inquiry throughout the modules. For these reasons, attendance and participation compromise central components of the evaluation of student performance throughout each module.
