You will develop the knowledge and skills to approach practical and policy challenges in a wide range of contexts by drawing on expertise from development geographers, political scientists, resource economists and development practitioners.
The Politics and Development specialisation
Politics and Development (co-ordinated by the School of Social Sciences, Faculty of Arts) uses social theory to analyse and interpret the geo-political dimensions of development. This specialisation provides students with an understanding of the key conceptual, historical and policy issues surrounding development. It considers the changing role of states, markets, firms, institutions and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in the process of negotiating and implementing development policy. This specialisation also introduces students to a range of approaches and frameworks employed by policymakers and practitioners in designing, implementing, and evaluating development policy.
You will explore, for example, debates regarding the role of gender in development; the origin and impact of 'good governance' agendas; the politics of aid programming and foreign policy; the historical and contemporary relationship between security and development, particularly in Africa; and the development dimensions of natural resource governance.

Key features

Specialisations are unique and provide students with both focus and flexibility.
Students will be equipped with analytical and practical skills to engage critically in development policy, research and practice.
Interdisciplinary focus enables a richer learning experience and an appreciation of different disciplinary perspectives - valued by employers.

Career opportunities

The Master of International Development enables you to build a diverse and rewarding career path in local and international development, from field based roles to research and policy within education and government.

Prospective employers include aid and development agencies, government departments, non-government organisations, and international institutions such as the United Nations.

Each of the specialisations are also pathways to Higher Degree by Research and an academic career in international development.
