MSc International Development offers a coherent and interdisciplinary grounding in the core aspects of international development theory, policy and practice.
The course is designed for social science graduates, or for those working in a wide range of development organisations both internationally and within developing countries.
It aims to blend theory and practice and seeks to explain policy behaviour through an integrated approach, drawing on a range of disciplinary perspectives.
MSc International Development is both a course in its own right and an umbrella structure that houses a range of more specialised master's courses, each of which explores a key dimension of international development under four broad thematic headings:
- Global political economy;
- Governance and management;
- Poverty and inequality;
- The environment.
The course is ideal if you're looking to learn more about developing countries, would like to gain the skills and capacity to think critically about development, and/or are interested in studying a truly interdisciplinary course.
