Sussex is recognised globally for teaching and research in international development. This course is for you if you have experience, or are considering a career, in the development field.
Sussex has the largest department in the UK focusing on social anthropology and pioneered the anthropological critique of development. We examine the impact of economic and social change on local practices, meanings and identities.
The MA focuses on issues of anthropological engagement, development policy and activism. You will learn from experts. You can also connect with our global network of research partnerships, alumni and professionals in the public, private, consultancy and not-for-profit sectors.
You should normally have an upper second-class (2.1) undergraduate honours degree or above.
Your qualification should normally be in anthropology or another humanities or social sciences subject; alternatively, you should have relevant professional experience or engagement.
