Course programme

The first year provides an introduction to key themes in international development and teaches you how evidence is used in informing development policy. The degree programme becomes more flexible in years two and three, allowing you to combine a variety of modules focusing on various topics, regions and themes.

Year 1

You will be introduced to the contemporary debates and issues in international development, taking modules such as ‘Introduction to Development Studies’ alongside ‘Evidence in Development’ and ‘Introduction to Natural Resources and Development’. You will also choose two further modules from a list which includes:

  • Introduction to Economics for Development
  • Social Anthropology and International Development
  • Evolution, Behaviour and Ecology
  • Biodiversity in a Changing World
  • Sustainability and Society
  • Atmosphere and Oceans
Year 2

In your second year you will continue to study the environment and natural resources, alongside developing the research methods and techniques used to analyse the environment and development.

There is also the opportunity to engage with one of the other disciplinary subject areas if you wish, such as social anthropology. You may also choose from a range of issue-related or regional modules covering topics relating to international development. These modules cover subjects such as education, gender, or south Asian, Latin American or Sub-Saharan African development. There will also be an opportunity to study a module from a different School.

Year 3

Your final year begins with a field course to either Scotland or Ireland, where you will study human-environment conflicts and conservation, using standard techniques as well as participatory or rapid rural assessments.

You will complete a dissertation on a topic that interests you, supervised by an academic with expertise in the area of your research. Alongside this you will study modules covering topics such as human rights, gender, health population, or alternatively you may take a module from another School, for example a foreign language.

In the spring semester you will study the module ‘Contemporary Issues in Resource Development and Conservation’, alongside choosing modules from a diverse range provided by the School.
