Study political science and interdisciplinary approaches to international development. Gain an understanding of why patterns of development vary between and within countries, and how key actors shape the development process. Your core modules will encompass a range of topics, including the politics of poverty and inequality, democracy and democratisation, the causes and consequences of conflict, and the relationship between state and society. You will also study the practices of a range of actors, from governments to international development agencies and NGOs to social movements. In addition, you will be able to tailor your degree to suit your interests and career ambitions by choosing from a range of interdisciplinary and single-disciplinary modules. 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.
