Engage influentially in debates and analysis of global policy issues through a lens shaped by the theories and approaches guiding global development.

  • Degree specialisation designed to build capabilities for roles in government and non-government development agencies
  • Learn the key theories, policies and approaches that shape global policy
  • Examine and appreciate influential factors, such as culture, history and politics

If your goal is to engage with local and international development practice, and provide thought-leadership on global policy issues, including poverty reduction, social policy, and human and food security, this degree specialisation is for you. You will learn key theories and be introduced to advanced policy analysis skills by internationally recognised researchers.

By examining the roles and approaches of development influencers, and the ways they shape national and global policy, you’ll gain the skills and knowledge to engage in major development debates. You will also acquire an appreciation of how historical, cultural, political and economic contexts are articulated in global development policy.

With these multiple perspectives and your deepened understanding of the development policy environment, you will have the ability to analyse, synthesise and communicate complex political and institutional challenges – and deliver considered policy recommendations, designed to be effective in local and international contexts.
