Looking for a contemporary take on development studies? Our new BA Global Development programme could be for you.

This is an innovative, interdisciplinary programme which examines the most pressing development challenges of our time – from health pandemics to social inequalities and climate change.

The programme will equip you with a range of theoretical and methodological tools for understanding development challenges from a global, intersectional perspective that centres the role of gender and race. You will learn about different languages and cultures in order to challenge the common use of Western historical experiences as the universal templates against which the rest of the world is understood.

You will gain first-hand experience of debating development theory, conducting original fieldwork and engaging global policy actors in order to develop evidence-based responses to the key development challenges of the 21st century, equipping you for a career in the global development arena.

Our BA Global Development programme combines the academic expertise across the School of Geography together with the School of Politics and International Relations, the School of Languages, Linguistics and Film, and the School of History.
