Course content

Practical issues are at the heart of this MSc. You will consistently benefit from research-led teaching, ensuring you encounter the latest thinking in the field. Research in UEA’s School of International Development (Global Development from 1 August 2023) is focused on addressing contemporary challenges in developing and transitioning economies via disciplinary and multi-interdisciplinary approaches. Within the programme you will be supported to develop complementary specialist areas of interests, and choose module options from a range of disciplines including economics, agricultural policy, environmental justice, climate change, gender and education.

A Development Work Placement is a strongly recommended option in the summer semester, and an alternative to a dissertation. You’ll work with a relevant organisation, writing an extended analytical report on your experience. This will give you a chance to reflect on and apply the ideas and concepts you’ve learnt so far by looking at humanitarian issues, the results agenda, project management systems and key topics in your chosen placement organisation.
