The International Development course offered by the University of Essex teaches the essentials of economics and politics, building a very good grounding to analyse the problems in international development. Approaching similar issues from different perspectives provides a more well-rounded and integrative view of the field. You are then able to explore a set of selected topics in international development in order to hone your skills on the subject matter, or build up more statistical techniques.
On this course you build a theoretical understanding of how to approach international development issues from different perspectives, alongside opportunity of applying your knowledge to issues in international development through studying the following topics:
- Political Economy
- Econometric and Statistical techniques
After completing your masters, you may wish to extend your knowledge with a research degree –many Essex graduates decide to stay here for further study.
Alternatively, our course also prepares you for employment; recent surveys have shown that higher degree graduates are more likely to obtain jobs at professional or managerial level.
Our recent Master’s level graduates have gone on to work for a range of high-profile organisations in the international development field, such as United Nations and The World Bank.
