International Development with Economics with a Year Abroad

**About This Course** There are incredible differences between outcomes in rich and poor countries. Being born in one of the richest nations can increase your life expectancy by up to 30 years and your earning potential up to 100 times compared to someone born in one of the poorest. On this degree you’ll learn to contribute effectively to development policy and practice, particularly where economics is the dominant specialty. You’ll explore how these inequalities arise, as well as discovering the policies and processes that can reduce them. By choosing the School of International Development, you’ll learn in an interdisciplinary environment. You’ll be exposed to perspectives from subjects like anthropology, politics, geography and natural resources. Guided by lecturers with first-hand experience, you will gain a deeper and more rounded understanding of contemporary global trends. You'll also broaden your perspective by spending a year studying at one of our partner universities abroad, before returning to UEA in your final year. **Overview** On this course you’ll examine international development while establishing strong foundations in micro and macro economics. You’ll acquire the ability to think like an economist about important world issues, using data and becoming familiar with models of how the world works. You’ll study microeconomics and macroeconomics. You’ll also explore definitions of economic development, and investigate the relationship between poverty, economic development and trade theories, exclusion and deprivation. You’ll address economic and broader socio-political processes, explore the relationship between economy and the environment in different world regions, and examine globalisation and its effects. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
