Summer Programme:
Social Justice and Development

St. James Research Centre (SJRC) is an ecumenical research centre in Falkirk, Scotland, that provides training and resources to students and practitioners. Our research areas include community-based development, modern slavery, orphan care, child and family systems, programme evaluation, and non-profit management. Join us for our summer programme this year! All students will be provided with a certificate in Community-Based Development and Research upon completion.

S T U D Y

Research

Complete a 3-5,000 word research assignment in the form of a research paper, a modern slavery risk assessment, or a programme evaluation. Each student will be guided by a supervisor with whom they will be matched prior to the programme to guide them in their research. All research projects will be assessed by a panel consisting of SJRC's faculty and selected partners at the end of the programme. 

Seminars

Attend seminars taught by SJRC's faculty and partners in a variety of topics, including community-based development, non-profit management and governance, modern slavery, programme evaluation, and research skills development. These seminars will be taught at SJRC and will not be graded. Seminars are designed to introduce students to key concepts in development and charitable work.
