The Sir Arthur Lewis Institute of Social and Economic Studies (SALISES) offers an exciting one year full time (two years part-time) MSc Development Studies programme ONLINE with specialisation in Governance and Public Policy, Economic Development Policy, and Social Policy in addition to a General option. The MSc in Development Studies truly fulfills the UWI’s strategic vision geared towards producing the ideal graduate with the requisite leadership training and an interdisciplinary grasp of the social sciences.
In addition to a firm grounding in contemporary social, political and economic affairs, the degree features a novel leadership seminar, a practical in-course approach to research methodology and a very useful technical writing seminar. Significant space is made available for the selection of electives from across the UWI, so that prospective candidates can, with the assistance of the SALISES faculty, design their own degree to suit existing or prospective job requirements.
SALISES offers a small group atmosphere, its own Documentation Centre and computer lab and a tireless and dedicated faculty (drawn from Mona, Cave Hill, and St Augustine) and administrative staff.
