Course summary

This MSc offers a critical approach to 'people-centred' development, addressing the challenges for equitable citizenship in the context of social diversity and globalisation, particularly in urban contexts. Participants engage in a critical analysis of the theory and practice of social development to develop their capacities as reflexive social development practitioners. This programme provides a solid grounding in social analysis skills and perspectives, rooted in social theory around identity, inequality, and social change processes. Students learn how development interventions can best support the citizenship claims of diverse groups living in the Global South, and consider the role of the social development practitioner in this endeavour.

Careers

Graduates of this programme are likely to find employment as officers for local and international NGOs, international organisations, in local or national government departments or as consultants. Some graduates pursue an academic career, either through doctoral studies or through teaching and research.
