The complex challenges of global poverty and development are making ever-greater demands on those working in aid agencies, governments, non-government organisations (NGOs) and policy and research institutes. Meeting these challenges calls for creative development professionals who can apply and integrate critical thinking and practical experience and be innovative in seeking meaningful solutions. This course provides a solid grounding in international development concepts, theories and approaches. It is designed to enhance career opportunities in international development by helping you gain the professional skills you need to work at the intersections of policy, research and practice. You are also able to understand the main theories, concepts and debates of development and to draw on this knowledge in your professional work, engage in an informed and critical way with professionals from diverse backgrounds and perspectives, and approach development problems with creativity, confidence and the ability to work collaboratively with others. The programme is structured to allow strong coherence and some integration with the other specialised MA degrees offered at the Institute of Development Studies (IDS).
