About the MSc programme

Anthropology and development are tightly entwined. This programme brings together essential elements of both. It combines crucial anthropological insights into, and critiques of economic globalisation and social transformation with proactive approaches to beneficial change.

This programme is offered by the Department of Anthropology with the assistance of the Department of International Development.

The core international development component of the programme uses classical institutional theory and new institutional economics to understand the role of institutions and organisations in development, giving you the theory and practical tools to drive social transformations forward. The Development Management Project will allow you to apply your knowledge as, together with a team, you undertake 'live' consulting work for real-world, public, private, and non-profit organisations.

The core Anthropology components of the programme offer a comprehensive study of how anthropologists have understood globalisation and other economic transformations. Focusing on both 'Big D' development (schemes of improvement or projects) and 'little d' development (change which occurs as the result of economic growth or modernisation), the programme shows you how anthropologists have changed practices from within as well as critiqued them from the outside. It also provides anthropological insights into new forms of production, consumption, exchange and financial circulation that have emerged since the 1980s
