Course summary

Explore how we can build a sustainable global future that leaves no-one behind. Develop a broad-based social science approach with a grounding in economics. On this course you’ll study some of the most important challenges facing our changing world – poverty, inequality, climate change, conflict and migration. By focusing on policy and practice, you will explore these challenges at local, national and international levels. You’ll analyse them using a multi-disciplinary approach that includes sociology and anthropology, politics and social research. Year 1 will develop your knowledge of economic principles and applications. You'll analyse international development and build your skills in qualitative or quantitative research. You’ll also learn how to evaluate data and information to develop your own arguments for different audiences. In Year 2, you'll deepen your knowledge of development economics. You'll develop your understanding of the economic, social and political dimensions of diverse global and local challenges. In your final year, you'll do your dissertation. This will explore a global or local problem in international development through economic and multi-disciplinary analysis. You’ll also study a range of optional units from within the fields of international development and economics. This will allow you to explore topics that interest you and prepare for your future career.
