Course content

Environmental considerations are central to international development theory, policy and practice. Our course gives you an in-depth understanding of the complexities of international development. You'll also explore how society-environment interactions influence international development policy and practice.

You'll develop professional skills, carry out hands-on research during an overseas field class, and you'll complete a placement-based dissertation that links academic theory with development practice.

Our teaching involves industry and sector specialists, which means you can make connections and contacts with a global network of expertise beyond the University. On this course you'll develop the practical skills you need to work within development and environmental organisations around the world.
