The students from the Master’s Degree Programme in Development, Education and International Cooperation from the University of Jyväskylä will learn both intellectual tools and practical skills, with which to encounter multi-faceted and contradictory phenomena in the field. The programme thereby broadens and deepens students’ understanding of international development institutions, policies, and actors from a critical, reflexive and interdisciplinary perspective.
Development Studies graduates from the University of Jyväskylä have found employment with a range of governments, intergovernmental organisations, charities, donor agencies, consultancy firms, or non-profit organisations. These include the United Nations, Red Cross, Finnish Ministry for Foreign Affairs, and various embassies around the world. Others have gone on to pursue doctoral studies and/or a career in academia.
