International Development with Politics with a Year Abroad - University of East Anglia

**About This Course** Levels of development differ between and within countries. On this degree you’ll study the causes of that inequality and explore possible solutions. You’ll also discover how the development process is shaped by key development actors, including governments, international development agencies, NGOs, and social movements. In your third year, you’ll spend two to six months gaining work experience abroad. For many students, this experience is the highlight of their time at university, and can help you to develop your career. You'll also broaden your insight by spending a year at one of our partner universities abroad, before returning to UEA to complete your studies. **Overview** This innovative degree programme combines the study of politics with interdisciplinary approaches to international development. You’ll study a range of topics including the politics of poverty, inequality, conflict and democracy and how governments, international development agencies, NGOs, and social movements influence political, economic and social change. You also get to choose from a range of options within the School of International Development, and in other departments. In your dissertation you’ll 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 including research skills, data analysis, designing policy interventions and civil society campaigns, delivering presentations, and team work.
