Master in Africa and Development - Máster en África y Desarrollo
Our Master of Development Studies degree gives students the theoretical grounding and practical experience required to address developing world issues. You’ll take away a raft of transferable skills from academic study, as well as refine career-relevant skills in critical analysis, communication, cross-cultural understanding, research methods, project design, project management and teamwork.
Specialise in gender and development studies
As part of your degree, you may choose to apply for our unique optional Gender and Development stream. It provides a superior understanding of gender and development theory.
