Course summary

This programme explores some of the world’s most pressing development challenges, from poverty and inequality, to migration, conflict and climate change. In our increasingly globalised world, these problems are growing in complexity and significance. The Sustainable Development Goals aim to tackle these challenges by 2030, but this will require global effort, co-ordination and vision. On this course you will apply a political lens to understanding and addressing the challenges of global development. You will learn how development is affected by politics at all levels, from the political economy of international assistance, to domestic politics and local power dynamics. We use real-world puzzles to bring to life the complex challenges of doing development in practice. This programme includes a specially designed Working in Development module, which will provide you with hands-on experience of common tools used in development projects and programmes. You will have the opportunity to see development in practice, through a study visit to a low or middle-income country. You will also have an opportunity to undertake a work placement through our integrated Professional Development Module.You will undertake a year abroad between your second and fourth years at a partner HE institution. This will give you the opportunity to experience a different academic environment and way of teaching (and even different approaches to the subject).
