The MSc in Global Development is an innovative, interdisciplinary and flexible course that equips you with the knowledge and skills to understand, investigate and respond to the key development issues of our times. You'll critically examine development theory, policy and practice across a range of contexts and you'll have the opportunity to explore six major issues: migration, socio-economic security, environmental sustainability, technological innovation, the global politics of development, and the politics of doing development. You’ll also deepen your understanding of the issues of most interest to you by examining them through four cross-cutting challenges: conflict, governance, justice, and transformation. This will lay the foundation for undertaking your own independent research project on a development topic of your choice. Overall, the MSc will enable you to build in-depth knowledge and understanding of key development issues, ideas and debates as well as an advanced capacity for critical and reflexive thinking, independent study and research, and collective dialogue and action. -
