Content

International development in Africa raises a complex set of issues. In this programme, you’ll draw on our Centre of African Studies’ long-standing reputation as a global hub of Africanist expertise to develop a deeper understanding of these issues. You will also draw on the university’s cross-disciplinary expertise on development through the Global Development Academy.

Suitable for both students and professionals from a wide variety of backgrounds, this programme combines theory and practice in seeking to contextualise and analyse the processes that have shaped poverty and underdevelopment in Africa, and the many responses to these issues.
