It is ever more important to understand how the world works. Few problems today can be easily confined to the domestic arena. A better knowledge of the world and international relations can help explain why problems – from terrorism to financial crises – occur and how best to resolve them. Read more

The Master's offers advanced cross-disciplinary training in development history, theory, research methods, and practical applications in a wide range of topics and geographical regions.

It will be attractive to graduates from a wide range of academic backgrounds who are interested in understanding development. It will also satisfy professionals working in national
and international NGOs, government departments, and other development activists, seeking social science perspectives on their work.

The last thirty years have seen major changes in our understanding of social and economic change, transition and development. These are complex processes requiring considerable attention to the specifics of local situations and circumstances. They are also processes which are situated in a system of global interconnections and influences.

This degree explores ways that education can contribute to the development process, both theoretically and empirically, from a variety of perspectives – including human rights, social and human development, and human capital. Read more
This degree explores ways that education can contribute to the development process, both theoretically and empirically, from a variety of perspectives – including human rights, social and human development, and human capital.

The course enables students to understand current debates, and their implications for national and international education strategies. In doing so it locates educational debates within a wider development perspective.

Topics in the core modules include current challenges of education and development, including linguistic and cultural diversity, the education of nomads and other migratory groups, and responses to conflict, HIV/Aids and child-labour. The programme also examines international and national policies and practices, with the aim of providing students with the capacity to contribute to appropriate policy design for educational development.

This degree incorporates a number of topics including concepts used in gender analysis of development, social justice, gender and power, poverty and inequality, and gendered approaches to social and human development such as capabilities, social exclusion and human rights, and violence, religion and identities.

We offer a broad training integrating theory and development policy experience which is both sectoral (eg education; land and property; credit and finance; rural livelihoods; sustainable development, environment and conservation; HIV/AIDS) and cross-cutting (eg migration, and male gender identities and masculinities in development).

Our graduates are employed in the World Bank, the UK DFID, and other bilateral aid agencies, and in large international NGOs like Oxfam as well as in developing country government departments and as academics.

This course focuses on the political development goals of sustainable peace, good governance and stable democracy. Read more
This course focuses on the political development goals of sustainable peace, good governance and stable democracy. Drawing on different theoretical approaches and various empirical examples throughout the degree programme, it asks students to critically assess alternative suggestions for establishing peace and inclusive, durable democracies in developing countries.

Key topics include inter alia the possible definitions, arguable causes and consequences of democracy; the political, social and economic effects of different political institutions; and the typically contested origins of violent intrastate conflicts as well as the suggestions that have been made to help overcome them.

The course adopts a unique interdisciplinary approach which is grounded in the acknowledgment that it is extremely difficult to meet international development targets in states experiencing endemic political instability, violent civil conflict, gross human rights abuses and acute crises of governance.

This MA is unique for its focus on the dynamic interactions between local livelihoods in rural areas and agriculture understood as a globalised industry. Read more
This MA is unique for its focus on the dynamic interactions between local livelihoods in rural areas and agriculture understood as a globalised industry. It advances an interdisciplinary perspective on linkages between global national and local level processes shaping agriculture and rural development by integrating knowledge from the social sciences economics and natural resource studies.

The MA gives an overview of agriculture, rural livelihoods and rural policy and politics to strengthen students analytical skills and to transfer key professional skills of relevance to work on rural development and agriculture. Lectures, seminars, group work and individual assignment will cover the policies and practices of the major international institutions in rural development, including the World Bank, Food and Agriculture Organisation and United Nations Development Programme, just as much as of civil society organisations, such as La Via Campesina.

This Master's offers a comprehensive overview of social development, combining academic and theoretical perspectives with more practical and policy-focused approaches.

Key themes include vulnerability and social exclusion, poverty, gender relations and mainstreaming, and social analysis. We pay particular attention to issues such as social equality, education, migration, health provision and policy, the implications of the HIV/AIDS pandemic and the role of civil society.

In the last two decades it has become apparent that development goes far beyond economic growth and encompasses broader human and social dimensions. The emerging paradigm is now influencing the agendas of major international development agencies, including the World Bank, UNDP, the EU, and the UK Department for International Development (DFID), as well as other bilateral donors.

All environmental issues derive from natural processes, but at the same time are social and political, and it is this unique interdisciplinary approach which drives this MSc. It will appeal to natural resource specialists and agriculturalists, as well as those from a social science background who work or are interested in and wish to study development issues, sustainability and the environment.

The interaction between environment and development is studied through analysing policy processes at local, national and international levels, as played out by a large cast of actors: policy makers, politicians, business administrators, rural and urban resource users.

We use a wide range of critical and constructive skills, analytical techniques and contextual knowledge to advance our understanding of these processes. A main focus of the MSc is on the political ecology approach to understanding debates and policy processes underpinning responses to environmental and natural resource problems.

This Master's degree interprets water security in its broad political ecology and political economy sense. We believe that the hydrological cycle is intimately connected to critical global policy concerns, climate change, food trade and food security, energy security and in turn to the international cooperation that affects human, community, regional and state security.

The programme will critically reflect on the practical and theoretical facets of water security with a view to develop a better foundation upon which to achieve developmental and environmental objectives.

We will provide the latest interdisciplinary theory and tools necessary to rise to the challenges and students will graduate with the knowledge and tools to be able to understand and audit the water security of a system of interest be it nation, region, company, sector, scheme or household.
