International Development

The majority of the world's people live in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean and the Middle East. Are you interested in finding out how social development is affecting the people who live in the world's poorest countries? Do you want to learn about globalisation and consider its impact on the people of Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, the Middle East and Europe? Are you interested in the way NGOs work to address issues of poverty? International Development with NGO Management Programme is concerned with the study of their societies, and the relationship between them and the rest of the world. The area is interdisciplinary, drawing on the insights of economics, politics, sociology, cultural studies and history to understand the nature of what has been termed the Third World. The main themes are 'globalisation' and 'development'. What do these terms mean? Is globalisation 'good' or 'bad' for developing countries? What kind of globalisation would be better? Is development desirable? This programme aims to develop you as an informed and critical development practitioner. We do this by providing you with: an exciting and rigorous academic programme; teaching that is informed by our research interests; opportunities to build your practical and employability skills, and overseas study and work placement options.
