Master in Development Studies



The Master in Development Studies is an intensive two-year study programme that offers an interdisciplinary approach to development. This programme provides students with a sound understanding of the local and global processes that define the politics and practices of international development.

The curriculum combines a critical analysis of alternative paradigms, methodological competences and substantive knowledge in thematic specializations

Together with professional skills workshops, the use of interactive pedagogical methods, a capstone project, and a thesis, students will gain the conceptual and practical tools they need to pursue successful careers in government, international organizations and the non-profit sector.
