Description

This Master's programme offers you a cohesive study that examines theory, policy and current practice in globalised development, preparing you for research and analysis in the field.

The Master's programme in International Development Studies offers you a cohesive and balanced programme that examines the theory, policy and current practice of development by combining in-depth academic research with professional relevance. It is designed to equip you with all the theoretical and practical knowledge and hands-on skills needed to conduct policy analysis and problem-oriented research in a creative, effective and integrated way. You will examine international development issues across three different themes: sustainable development, governance, and interaction between globalisation and local/regional strategies. A key element of this one year taught programme is an internship within a host organisation, generally located in a developing region. This gives you the opportunity to gain a first-hand understanding of the impact of development processes, while you write an interim research report based on a central research question assigned by your host organisation. The research report will be presented to the host organisaiton, and may be used as the basis for your Master's thesis.
