Presentación

This programme is offered either full and part time basis.
Take on the challenge of social development issues such as vulnerability, resilience, gender inequality, education and health. These fascinating topics are at the forefront of global development goals, and on the agendas of key international development agencies such as theUN and the World Bank.

You’ll have the opportunity to learn about theory, analytical skills and practices, which inform more appropriate and effective social development interventions. You’ll also be able to add professional skills and work experience to your academic learning, for example by taking an internship in the summer with a social development organisation, and by taking one or more of our professional training workshops.

You’ll graduate with the skills, and – if you choose the work placement option – relevant experience, to work in a range of social development fields and organisations, from the community level to project design and policy.
