Course Overview

The MSc International Development will equip you with a critical and up-to-date understanding of the field of international development. It is hosted by the Northumbria Centre for International Development, which brings together students, academics and practitioners.

The course attracts students from a wide variety of professional and disciplinary backgrounds including government, the private sector and NGOs. It is also popular with continuing students from undergraduate subjects including social sciences, law, human geography, physical geography, business and other subjects.

You will engage with contemporary debates on the issues that are currently defining the sector, whilst critically examining key international development policies, theories, strategies and practices. You will also analyse the operation of development organisations, and the ways in which individuals and communities experience and challenge poverty and marginalisation.

As part of your dissertation, you will have the opportunity to undertake a research placement - on a self-funded basis - to allow you to apply your knowledge in a real-world environment. You will also have the opportunity to engage with development practitioners through talks and guest lecturers.

This course is delivered by our specialist teaching team, who draw on their extensive experience to ensure that you graduate with knowledge that is at the forefront of the sector.

When studying the MSc International Development course you will be part of the Centre for International Development; a vibrant, multidisciplinary virtual research centre that provides an engaging, supportive and research-rich learning environment.
