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.
In the course of the year, a number of required workshops are provided to give the students the optimal preparation for their further careers.
