International Development with Philanthropy MSc


Course Description

International Development can encompass foreign aid, governance, healthcare, the eradication of poverty, infrastructure, economics and environment amongst other subjects.

It is taught by experienced development academics and practitioners whose expertise is underpinned by a strong track record of research activity in international development and related areas. You can also choose to direct your study with a Philanthropy or Policy Analysis pathway.

This interdisciplinary programme will equip you with a critical and up-to-date understanding of development policies, theories, strategies and practices within this broad field. You will be introduced to key contemporary debates including issues such as conflict and security, civil society and NGOs, the impacts of China and India’s rising economic power and citizenship.

Upon successful graduation you will have the skills and knowledge to develop careers with NGOs, local and state government and multilateral organisations. It also provides the foundation for international development research careers.
