School of International Development, University of East Anglia (DEV) The MA Development Practice is a new, interdisciplinary degree focusing on the key management and strategic challenges faced by the development sector. Ideal if you are seeking to start or advance a career in development and humanitarian management, this course offers a comprehensive introduction to the way the sector works, from planning to critical issues affecting the sector. It will provide you with a solid conceptual understanding of key debates and issues in international development, together with technical skills in project design and management.
Recent decades have seen significant shifts in the way NGOs and other organisations in the development sector operate. The MA Development Practice will give you critical perspectives on these changes, and equip you with tools for contributing to future developments.
Over the year, and across two central Critical Issues modules, you’ll develop a rigorous and deep critique of the ways NGOs and other agencies work, and the political contexts of development.
