Course description

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.

Aims

This course will:

  • Provide rigorous interdisciplinary training to equip you with a critical understanding of the theory and practice of international development.
  • Provide you with a thorough conceptual framework and the skills necessary to analyse effectively different perspectives on international development.
  • Provide critical insights into the key strategies, policies and practices currently employed to promote international development.
  • Develop professionally-oriented skills through optional courses in areas such as policy analysis, planning and managing development, and poverty reduction.
  • Provide a wide range of options for advanced training in areas of specialist expertise relevant to international development.
  • Develop advanced competencies in transferable areas, including developing reasoned arguments, gathering, organising and using evidence and information from a wide variety of sources, undertaking both team-based and independent work to deadlines, and both written and verbal forms of communication.
