About

In the Master’s programme of Geographical Development Studies at Freie Universität Berlin, societal processes are analysed in the context of development and transformation based on theories, models and methods from the social sciences. 

Overview

Theories from the field of development studies are applied in regional contexts, allowing crossroads perspectives to be pursued. Challenges regarding natural resource management and the politics and practice of international development are debated, and the interrelationship between planning and practice is expounded. 

Key Features 

  • Methods pertaining to geographical information systems (GIS), empirical social research and qualitative and quantitative data analysis are also applied to different fields of enquiry and empirical contexts. 
  • The disciplinary nature of the Geographical Development Studies programme from Freie Universität Berlin is diversified through interdisciplinary module options that enable students to specialise and tailor the programme to their specific learning and research interests.  

Programme Structure

  • A central aspect of the course is a field project in which the students plan, design and carry out an empirical research project from start to finish within the regional context of South or Central Asia, both independently and as part of a team. 
  • This involves developing a research question, selecting appropriate research methods, tools and techniques and documenting and presenting the results.
