You’ll gain a strong conceptual understanding of key debates and issues in international development, together with technical skills in project design and management. Please note we are changing our name to the School of Global Development from 1 August 2023, as we mark our 50th Anniversary. About This Course Practical issues are at the heart of this MSc. You’ll consistently benefit from research-led teaching, ensuring you encounter the latest thinking in the field.
