Development Studies - Master of Science Programme (120 credits), 120.0 hp

Examen: Masterexamen


Are you interested in working with development related issues, with a focus on human development, poverty reduction and sustainability?

What will I study?

This programme is an interdisciplinary  programme in social sciences, which deals with key issues in development as well as different theoretical perspectives to increase your understanding of the preconditions for and content of development. The objective of the programme is to provide you with the background knowledge and concrete skills to understand, assess and work in development-related fields, whether in direct poverty reduction or in other aspects of social and institutional development.

The medium of instruction is English. This means that lectures and seminars will be given in English and that examinations (including the master's thesis) will be in English.

During the third term (third semester) you are free to choose to do an internship, exchange studies, or take elective courses. You will be given ample opportunities for developing your intellectual capacities, expanding your skills and competencies, building up your network, as well as preparing for your life after your masters, whether your goal is to stay in academia or find work in NGO's, private sector or public sector.

What happens after the programme?

After completing the Master of Science Programme in Development Studies, you will acquire a degree of Master of Science in Development Studies (120 credits), with a major in one of the following disciplines: Gender Studies, Development Studies, Human Geography, Education, Political Science, Social Work, Social Anthropology, Sociology, or Sociology of Law. The major corresponds to the major in the Bachelor's degree.

The programme in development studies will prepare you for PhD-studies as well as for a career in a role as policy maker, trainer or practitioner, in government agencies, private firms and NGOs.
