Ne öğreneceğim?

Our MSc International Development and Social Anthropology will be of particular interest to anyone wishing to study global development, policy and practice and their local impacts from an anthropological perspective. It will help you to understand issues, processes and institutions central to global poverty, inequality and development, and to apply anthropological theories and methods to the field of international development.

The course provides a solid base for those planning a career in development agencies, the non-governmental sector and other international organisations, and for those working in such institutions who wish to take a larger role in the direct provision of services or policy development. It is also relevant if you are interested in policy research, in journalism and in undertaking advanced research in international development, anthropology and related fields.

The compulsory modules will improve your skills in evaluation and analysis, enabling you to participate critically in debates on the changing nature of the multilateral, bilateral and non-governmental institutions designed to address development issues, the context in which they operate and the constraints they face. You will also have the opportunity to choose from a range of thematic option modules which allow you to tailor your programme according to your personal or career interests.

The transferable skills you will develop include the capacity to analyse debates and issues in development, team-working, and written and oral communication. You will also learn to locate and analyse qualitative and quantitative data on development from printed and electronic sources.
