Course summary

Linking with NGOs in international development and humanitarianism, the programme provides knowledge and skills relevant to challenges as diverse as poverty, Third World Debt, globalisation, conflict, natural disaster and political instability.It considers how political action, both in the West and in the Third World, can support moves towards sustainable economic development across the world. An opportunity for placements overseas, or with relevant development organisations at home, will enable students to see first-hand how development NGOs work. This invaluable experience allows students to deepen and apply their learning in the development sector and make many new contacts. Students will learn and develop their skills and knowledge across the disciplines:The International Development component tackles the overarching question: how has it come about that there are very rich and very poor nations, with massive inequalities in life chances for their citizens? And what can be done to remedy this? It also studies post-colonial societies and cultural psychology, as well as patterns, connections and inequalities in global health.The Global Politics aspect of the degree programme complements and reinforces the practical work and the study of international development. There is a focus on International Political Economy, Human Rights and Ethics, with consideration of the challenges posed by environmental change, conflict and war, the role of information networks and organisations such as the United Nations. International migration, trafficking and terrorism are also considered.
