Social Development

The programme addresses the increasing focus on social aspects of development in policy, planning and practice. Official donor agencies as well as governments and non-government organisatoins (NGOs) now see much of what they do as being concerned with social development, and many important concepts in development - such as the sustainable livelihoods approach, empowerment, participation, partnership and the rights-based approach to development - are rooted in the tradition of social development. Taught by active practitioners and research faculty within the School of Global Studies, this course provides you with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills to become a social development practitioner. If you have some experience in the field, it provides opportunities to expand and deepen your knowledge. We draw on a range of teaching methods, including interactive lectures, workshops and one-to-one supervision.
