Course summary

This is an interdisciplinary degree where you will study the economic, political and social aspects of development. During the course you will be able to specialise in any of these aspects according to your interests.

A focus on economics is maintained throughout because of its importance to international development as a field of work and the transferable work skills it provides.

In the first year you’ll gain an understanding of international development from a range of disciplinary perspectives. In the second year you will develop qualitative and quantitative skills with more advanced theoretical perspectives. You will apply these to a range of contexts and development challenges.

The final year allows you to specialise and select topics that most interest you. You will apply practical and research skills and perspectives to current problems of development. You can also maintain a focus on economic analysis.

Careers

The study of international development will provide you with an academic foundation for a career in a range of fields. These could include:

  • governmental and international agencies
  • non-governmental organisations
  • development consultancies
  • international businesses (especially in emerging markets)

It also provides a solid foundation for postgraduate training for journalism, teaching and business.
