University of Sussex
Science, Society and Development
This programme looks at science, society, sustainability and development, focusing on the key areas of agriculture, environment, and health. You are invited to address complex policy issues including water and sanitation, epidemic disease, the African Green Revolution, biodiversity and genetically modified crops. This programme emphasises the ways that politics permeates policy processes at all levels, and plays out through competing framings, narratives, knowledge and networks. Starting with a solid grounding in development studies and society-science technology relations, the course then puts the dynamics of policy processes at centre stage. The course provides you with a theoretically informed understanding of debates in development, sociological studies of science and technology, and governance and policy processes, while promoting a people-oriented approach; it equips you with the ability to critically examine and reflect on the role of science in environmental, health and agricultural issues within development, using an interdisciplinary perspective; engage in an informed and critical way with other professionals; apply practical methods and frameworks to research problems; and advance policy debates on key issues relating to food and agriculture, health and disease, water and sanitation, and agricultural research problems.
