Course content

This course is designed to produce international developers with advanced intercultural communication skills – it’s taught by the School of Languages and Cultures and the Department of Geography.

A module on international project management integrates the two subjects and there are communication seminars designed for developers. Fieldwork is important. The course includes a compulsory field class in the global south. Recent field classes were in the Galapagos, Nepal and Tanzania.

In a global society based on fairness, everyone’s voice should be heard. The world needs developers who can communicate across cultural boundaries and bring people together. As a graduate of this course, you’ll be well placed to make a difference.

Teaching
Lectures, seminars, small-group work and workshops.

Assessment
You’re assessed on coursework and a dissertation. The dissertation involves a work placement (often undertaken in the global south) with a development organisation.
