About this program

MSc International Development

If you're energised by the idea of working with developing countries, our International Development Master's will develop your understanding of international development and enhance your career prospects.

On this course, you'll explore the history, theory and practice of international development. You'll explore colonialism and globalisation, and unpack the tools, strategies and techniques used in the field.

You'll also choose your own specialisation – such as health, education, gender, international relations or criminology – and produce a project based on your research.

When you graduate, you'll have expert knowledge of development issues and strong career prospects in the international development sector – and desirable transferable skills such as communication, and qualitative and quantitative research methods.
