Course content

The Postgraduate Certificate aims to locate African development firmly in theory and practice. It seeks to contextualise and analyse the processes that have shaped poverty and underdevelopment, and the main responses to them.

The programme offers a grounded and multi-disciplinary grasp of issues of development in the African context, and is aimed at students interested in pursuing a career in development agencies, political institutions, the public sector or non-governmental organisations.

The PG Certificate comprises three courses:

* Politics and Theories of International development;
* Roots of African Poverty and Development;
* Analysing Development Aid.
