Erasmus Mundus Joint Master in Resilience in Educational Contexts
The Erasmus Mundus Joint Master in Resilience in Educational Contexts -EMJM FLOURISH is a two-years’ full-time programme that seeks to address the need to provide a meaningful, relevant and balanced education for children growing up in adverse and marginalised circumstances, by focusing on their strengths and building their assets within protective contexts. It aims to build the capacity of educators and practitioners in creating resilience enhancing contexts which equip children and young people with the necessary resources and competencies to deal effectively with the challenges in their education and development.
The EMJM Resilience in Educational Contexts is offered by the University of Malta (leading partner) (P1), the University of Crete, Greece (P2); the University of Lisbon, Portugal,(P3) and Stefan Cel Mare University, Suceava, Romania (P4). The Programme is supported by six other associated partners, namely Dalhousie University, Canada; University of Rijeka, Croatia; University of Pretoria, South Africa, Orebro University, Sweden; University of Sao Paolo, Brazil, and the European School Psychology Training Centre.
The first cohort starts in October 2023 and then the group will be at the University of Crete in Spring Semester 2024. The student will do one at least more mobility to the other two universities in 2024. The last semester (dissertation) is online or face to face at one of the four universities. Language of instruction is English.
EMJM FLOURISH contains a curriculum of 120 ECTS spread over 4 full time semesters of 30 ECTS each. These include a number of compulsory taught study units, elective taught study units, a practice placement/internship, a dissertation, and an optional (zero credit) summer school. It incorporates the latest developments in the theory, research and practice of resilience in educational contexts, exposing students to a broad based, evidence informed, and multidisciplinary study of the field. The programme is informed by a systemic perspective to resilience, putting particular emphasis on how educational communities, in collaboration with families and other partners, may operate as resilience enhancing, inclusive social systems.
