Programme Overview

The MA in International Development at Richmond University is grounded in the recognition that development is inherently international, and inherently political: a concept that cannot be separated from core questions of global governance, international conflict, attempts at conflict resolution, and post-conflict reconstruction, or from issues of human development and human security.
The programme ensures that students understand the history of international development from post war modernization to the Millennium Development Goals, with particular emphasis on building a conception of the impact of global governance on political and economic processes in the developing world.

Aims of the programme

1. Provide an opportunity for participants to deepen their understanding of global governance
2. Provide participants with a thorough conceptual framework and the skills necessary to analyse effectively the relationships between international development within the context of modernization, emergence and economic development
3. Develop research skills and a knowledge base for career development or further academic research with emphasis on developing reasoned arguments, information gathering, organization and using evidence from a wide variety of sources,
4. Assist students in developing their specialist area of expertise within development management, and applying their understanding and skills through supervised individual research culminating in a dissertation.
