45 Masters of Science in Development Studies

Obtaining a Master of Science (MSc) degree in Development Studies can provide graduates with the information necessary to address those problems unique to developing countries. This entails a multi-tiered approach to meeting the needs under-developed areas, which can serve students with an interest in helping the less fortunate.

Many students may find themselves asking, “What is an MSc in Development Studies?” This area of study involves a broad knowledge base to ably address the many complex problems found in the developing world. Coursework can include topics such as the effects of industrialization, the role of non-governmental organizations in poverty stricken countries, and globalization’s impact on developing economies. Classes will involve theoretical analysis of popular methods of addressing the needs of less-advantaged countries, as well as real world examples of efforts to diminish inequality in such regions.

The most obvious benefit of pursuing an MSc in Development Studies is the ability to offer assistance to those suffering from the devastating effects of poverty. This allows graduates to achieve a real sense of purpose within their chosen careers, which can be an important consideration to many.

Because tuition costs can vary quite a bit, students are encouraged to contact a school directly to gain an accurate assessment of applicable fees. This will help ensure that a potential educational institution fits well within a student’s financial outlook.

There are a number of rewarding careers one can secure upon graduating with a master’s degree in development studies. Students can find positions as aid workers in areas ravaged by disease and poverty, or undertake educational duties within a collegiate setting. Governmental positions also exist, and can include roles as policy advisors and analysts. Graduates can also find employment in project management and evaluation, which can be vital for remedying ongoing issues in the developing world.

Registering for online classes is a great option for students seeking a bit of flexibility when it comes to their school schedules. This is especially true of those holding full time jobs, who may find it difficult to regularly attend classes.
