Description

This MA is unique for its focus on the dynamic interactions between local livelihoods in rural areas and agriculture understood as a globalised industry. It advances an interdisciplinary perspective on linkages between global national and local level processes shaping agriculture and rural development by integrating knowledge from the social sciences economics and natural resource studies.


The MA gives an overview of agriculture, rural livelihoods and rural policy and politics to strengthen students analytical skills and to transfer key professional skills of relevance to work on rural development and agriculture. Lectures, seminars, group work and individual assignment will cover the policies and practices of the major international institutions in rural development, including the World Bank, Food and Agriculture Organisation and United Nations Development Programme, just as much as of civil society organisations, such as La Via Campesina.

BSc Physics

4.0 19/12/2017
What I would highlight: Since I was little I have always been interested in how the world works and what I can do with the mechanics of the world. I came here before as an intern, an international student to do foundation of science, but then I felt in love with the UEA and that's why I'm here. So far, I had many lab experiences, I really like the labs where we have to do physics experiments.

BA History of Art

4.0 11/12/2017
What I would highlight: The size of the class is quite small which enables a much closer discussion. I've definitely became much more confident in my way of thinking. The course is not focused on the western history of art but in art as a transcultural phenoman. One of the highlight is our trip to Venice to see all the paintings.

5.0 10/12/2017
What I would highlight: The best about this course is the support you receive from the faculty --you really feel a sense of community since the first year. Once I didn't understand a concept so I asked one of the lecturers to come and he did, came for two hours to answer all my questions.

MSc International Business Economics

F
Former Student
5.0 16/10/2017
What I would highlight: It has changed my life. You come in quite scared about who you're going to meet and what experiences you're going to have and when it's time to go home to your parents, you can barely convey the amount of love and support that we all have for each other!
What could be improved: Nothing.
