International Development with a Foundation Year - University of East Anglia

**About This Course** Prepare for a career in international development with a degree that explores the social, political, and economic dimensions of the field. You’ll tackle diverse issues such as poverty, globalisation, gender inequality, conflict and humanitarian interventions. You’ll also have the option of taking modules on environmental change, education and development, geographies of development, and media and development, as well as modules focusing on particular regions of the developing world. You will start your degree with a foundation year to help you develop the skills and knowledge you will need to succeed, exploring global challenges, such as migration, climate change and population growth, and being supported to learn and study effectively. You will have the chance to get a taste of previously unknown areas of study and you’ll be actively encouraged to develop your own scholarly interests, so when you successfully finish your foundation year, you’ll be perfectly placed to progress to Year 1. **Overview** On this course you’ll develop a thorough understanding of contemporary issues in international development. At the same time you’ll have the chance to explore key related academic disciplines such as anthropology, politics, economics and geography. You’ll also have the chance to develop a range of skills that are valued by employers, including research skills, the ability to analyse data, prepare reports, give presentations, and work as part of a team. In Year 3, your dissertation allows you to study a topic of your own choice in depth, under the supervision of a faculty member. 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. Our flexible approach to learning enables you to explore your interests and strengths, graduating with a world-class degree in international development. Although registered on the BA International Development degree, successful completion of the foundation year allows entry to any of the interdisciplinary undergraduate degree pathways in the School of International Development (DEV), including: BA International Development, BA International Development with Anthropology, BA International Development with Economics, BA International Development with Politics, BA Media and International Development, BA Geography and International Development and BSc International Development and the Environment.
