International Development with Overseas Experience

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. Your dissertation allows you to study a topic of your own choice in depth, under the supervision of a faculty member. 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. 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. **Course Structure** **Year 1** In your first year you’ll be introduced to contemporary debates and issues in international development through the two compulsory modules, Introduction to Development Studies and Evidence in Development. Alongside these modules, you’ll choose three optional modules from a diverse range provided by the School. These include Introduction to Economics of Development, Introduction to Human Geography, Introduction to Social Anthropology, Introduction to Politics, and Humanitarian Communication. **Year 2** In your second year you’ll study two main subject areas, choosing from anthropology, politics, economics, natural resources and geography, and politics. You’ll also be able to choose from a range of optional modules covering topics such as gender and development, education and development, and communication for development. You’ll also study research methods and have the opportunity to choose a module from a different School. This could include a foreign language. **Year 3** In your third year you’ll write a dissertation on a development topic of your own choice. You’ll be supported and supervised by an academic with expertise in your chosen area of research. In addition to this you’ll continue to define your own learning, selecting a number of optional modules from a diverse range. You can also choose from a selection of modules from another School at UEA. In your spring semester you will have the opportunity to choose modules from an alternative range, covering topics such as globalisation and economic development, urban geographies, resource development and conservation, engaging anthropology in development, and media production for development. You can opt to do a work placement in the UK, or take a vocational skills module. You will also spend three to four months overseas on the Development Work Experience module, working on a development project. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
