Presentación

This programme is offered either full and part time basis.
On this MA, you’ll benefit from a multidisciplinary approach to international development, drawing from areas such as politics, economics, anthropology, philosophy, sociology, geography, and environmental science.

You’ll discover the importance of historical context when trying to make sense of current development challenges. You’ll also discover how to fully get to grips with international development issues by viewing them as a complex interrelation between society, economics, politics and the environment.

You’ll be able to tailor your studies to your interests and ambitions, choosing from a large range of modules within and beyond the School of International Development. You’ll also choose whether to write a dissertation or do a summer placement – so there are plenty of opportunities to shine.

Not only will you gain comprehensive knowledge of your subject, you’ll also build the necessary skills for a successful and effective, career in the field, and/or PhD study.
