Program Information

School:University of East Anglia
Faculty:Social Sciences / International Development
Field of Study:Development Economics and International Development
Description:Combine the study of human geography with international development to tackle the biggest challenges facing the modern world – poverty and inequality, food security, climate change, conflict, global governance, sustainability and migration. You will select modules dedicated to the development of regions of the world such as Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia and Latin America as well as modules that cover particular geographical themes, such as People and Place, Urban Geographies, and Natural Resources for Development. In addition to specialised human and social geography modules, you can also choose optional modules from related disciplines including environmental studies, economics, anthropology, politics and media.

Field work and field courses are a vital part of the degree. In addition to field-work elements in a number of the taught modules we have a weekend residential trip in the first year, and a choice of UK and international field courses in the second year – past students have gone to India and Chile. In your third year, you’ll have the opportunity to gain international experience through our Development Work Placement module and/or dissertation research. Past students have worked for the UN in Cambodia, on a rural development project in South Africa, in Great Yarmouth on a climate change project, and in Tanzania on a government accountability project. The course emphasises academic rigour and technical skills whilst also ensuring strong employability. You’ll gain practical skills training, field experience, and IT skills including in Geographical Information Systems (GIS).
