The Master of Development Studies is a flexible and interactive degree that provides specialist studies in international development at local, national and international levels. Our courses are based on a philosophy of human rights, social justice, community development and participatory approaches. You will learn the framework to understand and negotiate the complexities of the geopolitical, economic, social, ethical, and cultural contexts in which development takes place. You will study alongside a team of academics at the front line of national and international development practice.
