You will have the opportunity to specialize in, for example, the role of education in development, economics, children’s rights, natural resources and environmental concerns or urbanisation and urban inequalities. A characteristic feature of this Master’s programme is a fieldwork period of roughly 8-10 weeks in a developing country, in which you will conduct your own research project.
