The bachelor s programme in development studies is interdisciplinary and focuses on economic, social and political processes and their linkages to development cooperation. The aim is to provide the knowledge needed in order to critically examine and understand the preconditions for, and process of, development.
The programme offers students both the background knowledge and the concrete skills needed to work in development-related fields. Students also gain a critical social science approach that prepares them for postgraduate studies and assists them in various professions within government agencies, private firms and NGOs.
The programme draws on, and combines, the scientific traditions from four different disciplines within the social sciences, i.e. sociology, political science, human geography and economic history. This offers the students a multi-disciplinary perspective on development studies, and provides opportunity to deepen the knowledge in any of the aforementioned subjects.
