Overview

Gain first-class training in how agriculture can contribute to poverty alleviation and rural development in low-income countries.

This MA in Agriculture and Rural Development from the University of East Anglia  combines theoretical knowledge with empirical insights and case studies, giving you a well-rounded view of the issues at hand.

You’ll take advantage of the teaching team’s hands-on experience with agriculture and rural development in a large variety of low-income countries – giving you a unique and relevant perspective from the people who’ve been there.

You’ll cover agriculture, rural livelihoods and rural policy and politics and get to grips with the policies and practices of the major international institutions in rural development. You’ll even cover civil society organisations such as La Via Campesina who fight for workers’ rights and Brazil’s Landless Workers Movement – the mass social movement formed by rural workers who fight for land reform and against injustice and social inequality in rural areas.

A career in international development can take you in all kinds of directions such as international organisations, governmental and non-governmental organisations, local governments, private sector and PhD programmes.
