This programme provides a sound foundation in contemporary development economics. It's unique as it integrates methods, research findings and new insights from behavioural and experimental economics. The MSc is taught by a team of internationally-respected development economists with a vast amount of experience, at the forefront of innovative development research internationally. The programme applies economic analyses to real-world problems, like poverty and underdevelopment, to identify effective policies.
This Master's course requires students to undertake compulsory and optional modules, an examination and to produce a dissertation. Optional seminars, workshops and sessions are offered throughout the programme for teaching and strengthening student essay and dissertation writing skills. The School of International Development addresses contemporary challenges via multi/interdisciplinary approaches, where research is organised into a series of Research Groups.
The School of International Development at the University of East Anglia is a globally renowned department for teaching, research and consultancy on international development. Research in the School addresses challenges in developing and transition economies via disciplinary and multi/interdisciplinary approaches.

The Master's degree provides excellent employability prospects, with graduates employed in both development and non-development organisations, including international organisations, academia, NGOs, government ministries and the private sector. It also provides a solid master's training to those who want to pursue their PhD studies in development.
