International Development and the Environment with a Year Abroad

On this course you’ll study the key themes in environmental and natural resource management. How do we understand and measure environmental change? What do we mean by good environmental governance? How can our understanding of these areas influence environment and development policy, human rights and other elements that collectively determine the well-being of individuals and communities? Your studies will concentrate on natural resources and environmental issues in development, such as climate change, water security, coastal ecosystems and forest conservation, biological diversity and sustainability. You’ll explore links between the environment, questions of policy, and people’s livelihoods and poverty reduction. You’ll learn about the current distribution of access to resources, services, opportunities, human rights and other elements that determine the well-being of individuals and communities. You’ll be taught by academic staff whose research is internationally renowned. We’re actively involved in research across the globe, working with many national and international development agencies. **Course Structure** **Year 1** At the start of your degree you’ll be introduced to the contemporary debates and issues in international development. You’ll take modules such as ‘Introduction to Development Studies’ alongside ‘Evidence in Development’ and ‘Introduction to Natural Resources and Development’. You’ll also choose two further modules covering topics such as economics for development, social anthropology and international development, the politics of development, human geography, and humanitarian communication. **Year 2** In your second year you’ll continue to study the environment and natural resources. At the same time you’ll develop the research methods and techniques used to analyse the environment and development. You’ll also have the opportunity to engage with one of the other disciplinary subject areas if you wish, such as social anthropology. You may also choose from a range of issue-related or regional modules covering topics relating to international development. These modules cover subjects such as education, gender, or south Asian, Latin American or Sub-Saharan African development. There will also be an opportunity to study a module from a different School. **Year 3** You’ll spend your third studying abroad at one of our partner universities before returning to UEA for your final year. **Year 4** Your final year begins with a field course to either Scotland or Ireland. You’ll study human-environment conflicts and conservation, using standard techniques as well as participatory or rapid rural assessments. You’ll also complete a dissertation on a topic that interests you, supervised by an academic with expertise in the area of your research. Alongside this you’ll study modules covering topics such as human rights, gender, health population, or alternatively you may take a module from another School, for example a foreign language. In the spring semester you will study the module ‘Contemporary Issues in Resource Development and Conservation’, alongside choosing modules from a diverse range provided by the School. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
