Course content

The MSc will teach you how to engage with local knowledge and community-based approaches, rather than rely on global blueprints for sustainable development. The course is taught by an active, interdisciplinary team involved in world-class research on development issues.

We offer comparative knowledge about achieving environmental and social sustainability through participatory approaches and active collaborations with projects for empowerment in the Global South. Geographical areas of expertise include Sub-Saharan Africa, South America, South Asia, South-East Asia, the Middle East, Europe and Melanesia.

Core modules:

• Anthropology and Development

• Society, Energy, Environment and Resilience
