The interdisciplinary Bachelor`s programme in Development Studies focuses on economic, social and political processes linked to development cooperation. As our student, you learn to critically examine global and local preconditions and processes of development.
The scientific traditions from four disciplines are combined in the study plan: Sociology, Political Science, Human Geography and Economic History. Our students get both a multi-disciplinary perspective on development studies and an opportunity to deepen their knowledge in any of these four subjects.
The programme is structured so that students get an introduction to the subject during year one (consisting of four 15 credits courses), acquire a specialisation through depth (30 credits in one of the four major disciplines) and width (30 credits optional courses) in year two, which can also be spent abroad, and further specialisation and preparation for the working life (including an opportunity to do an internship or a minor field study) in year three.
The courses within the programme are:
