A Bachelor's degree in the field of Social Sciences (e.g. Anthropology, Sociology, Geography, Economics, Political science, International Relations, Development Studies, European Studies, Liberal Arts and Sciences), or humanities (e.g. History, Philosophy, Arts and Culture), or an equivalent level of relevant education or working experience.
The Master of Arts in Globalisation and Development Studies (GDS) prepares students for academic and professional careers in the field of globalisation and development.
Globalisation and Development Studies is a one-year, selective, international and interdisciplinary programme taught in English. Numerous links with national and international organisations, government agencies, and research projects give students the skills, experience and knowledge required in the field of G&D both in academia and the professional world. Students are required to have a bachelor degree in the humanities, social sciences or a relevant field.
The programme provides a sound basis through theory, issues and methods pertaining to globalisation and development while offering elective courses in contemporary globalisation issues of relevance for developing countries. It deals with problems of inequality, poverty, and vulnerability and investigates new possibilities for transformation and emancipation offered by new global actors such as emerging economies, migrant Diasporas and transnational activist groups.
