Course content

Today, the NGO sector needs to be able to assess and develop its roles and it requires a new level of expertise to meet the increasingly complex goals of development and relief work. NGOs are now being expected to deliver projects and programmes more and more effectively as well as to contribute to a healthy 'civil society'.

The degree is taught by a team of leading researchers in the field, each of whom has both research and hands on policy experience.

Located in the LSE's Department of Social Policy (rated the UK's top department in the Research Assessment Exercise), the new MSc Degree focuses on key issues such as the changing context of development policy, NGO organizational issues and the theory and practice of civil society.
