Applicants require a 2.1 Honours degree or non-UK equivalent qualification (for example, Grade Point Average 3.0 or above) in a social sciences subject; occasionally candidates with other qualifications and relevant work experience may also be admitted; if students have a degree in Economics and wish to pursue further studies in development economics, they are advised to apply for the MSc Economic Development or the MSc Finance and Economic Development.
Students take 2 core courses and 4 optional courses and complete a substantial independent piece of work, normally in the form of a dissertation. Core courses: growth and development; development policy. Optional courses: aid and development; basic econometrics; behavioural economics; theory and applications; challenges in international policies; critical perspectives on human rights; economics of inequality and deprivation; environmental economics; financial institutions and markets in developing countries; foreign direct investment and development; human rights and global politics; IMF world bank and economic growth; international security and global politics; international trade; policies for sustainability and development; project planning, appraisal and implementation; the European Union in international politics and development; the law and economics of sovereign debt regulation; theory and principles of sustainability. If students have little or no economics experience, they are strongly recommended to take the non-credit introductory course to economics offered before semester 1 begins.
Students complete a dissertation of between 12,000 and 15,000 words.
