A Life-Changing Experience
The Master’s in Development Studies provides students a home for an intellectually rewarding academic experience that fosters interdisciplinary learning, teaching and research on the multi-dimensional processes of socio-economic, political and cultural developmental changes in the Global South. Its novel interdisciplinary curriculum examines theories and practices of development that join theoretical learning to proficiencies in practical research and place-based knowledge.
