Study the social, political and economic dimensions of international development. You will tackle a diverse range of topics, covering issues such as poverty, gender inequality, conflict and economic growth. You will also have the opportunity to study natural resources, examining the sustainability and governance of soils, water, food production, fisheries and more. The programme enables you to develop a thorough understanding of contemporary issues in international development and of academic disciplines relevant to the study of development, such as anthropology, politics, economics and geography. You will also have the chance to develop a range of skills valued by employers, including the ability to analyse data, prepare reports, give presentations clearly and confidently, and work as part of a team. Our flexible approach to learning enables you to explore your interests and strengths, so that you graduate with a world-class degree in international development. Approximately half of our undergraduates decide to spend three to four months overseas on the Development Work Experience module in their third year, working on a development project. An overseas experience will provide you with valuable insights and practical experience in a different country, and a chance to develop personal skills that are welcomed by employers. Destinations span Africa, Latin America, North America, Europe and Australasia.
