Africa and International Development

The programme offers a unique combination of regional expertise with a focus on the theory and practice of international development. International Development is concerned with the idea of good change, but who decides what constitutes 'good change'? How should such change happen? What unintended consequences might the pursuit of change create? The course encourages you to critically explore these questions, in the context of Africa. Our course offers you a unique opportunity to acquire a combination of interdisciplinary, regional expertise with a critical knowledge of international development theory and practice. With this grounding, many of our students have gone on to work in development for charities, government agencies, international organisations, think-tanks or advocacy groups. Our degree can also serve as a stepping-stone for a career in research or academia.
