The MSc Development Studies is a new and exciting one-year (two years part-time) programme coming from the Sir Arthur Lewis Institute of Social and Economic Studies (SALISES). It replaces the previously taught degrees in Governance and Public Policy, Economic Development Policy, and Social Policy. 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.
