Course Summary

This established course, which has been running for ten years, examines the central issues facing developing countries in today’s globalised world, giving you the skills for a job in development and the wider sectors. Our aim is to make you an informed and critical development practitioner. You will be equipped with all the practical skills that are demanded by development agencies. You will also gain insight across the wider picture, understanding how developing countries can progress and how the poor can be mobilised to escape from the poverty trap. The course also explores how NGOs can play a key role in promoting social and economic progress and you will develop the ability to identify, design and implement programmes with a view to engaging with and enhancing the situation of the poor. Our students and staff are a diverse group from different backgrounds and your tutors have expertise in many key development regions and countries from South Asia and Latin America to Middle East and Africa. This course is accredited by the IAC/EADI.

You will learn about development management in the international context and the impact of globalisation. We focus on public management and the role of aid agencies and NGOs in development and encourage you to gain general conceptual, critical and evaluative skills. Our Project and Programme Design module will give you insight into a range of approaches to development interventions, including design, implementation and management. The course introduces design methods used by NGOs and aid agencies as well as important issues such as sustainability and alternatives to the project approach. We will also teach you how to examine rationales for research and a range of investigative techniques. This will help you prepare for your dissertation in which you will demonstrate your ability to use theories from earlier modules alongside your own research findings.
