Development Studies courses in the UK

Introduction to Development Studies

Development Studies is a multidisciplinary branch of social science which examines issues related to developing countries, especially concerning social and economic development. Peace Studies and Conflict Resolution both aim to identify and analyse the violent and non-violent behaviour that causes social conflict with a view towards creating a more stable world society. Most major UK universities and many colleges offer degrees in Development Studies and Peace Studies and Conflict Resolution or associated subjects.

Development Studies can involve Anthropology, Globalisation, Economics, Environment and International Development, while Peace Studies and Conflict Resolution covers topics such as International Politics, Arms Control and Proliferation, Human Rights, Politics of the Global Environment, Democracy and Religion and Politics.

Careers in Development Studies

After graduating from a Development Studies or Peace Studies and Conflict Resolution course you will have a huge range of employment opportunities in non-governmental organisations, charitable institutions, local or international government, research, teaching and advisory organisations. These careers entail extensive travel and will give you the chance to devise strategies for raising the condition of developing countries and working towards world peace.
