About International Social Development (Part Time) at University of East Anglia (UEA)


Key themes of this Master's include vulnerability and social exclusion, poverty, gender relations, social policy and social protection. The degree combines social theory and analysis with more practical and policy-focused approaches allowing students to learn concepts to pursue analysis of social development and social change, which is applied to development interventions and practice.


At the core of this programme are two unique core modules: Social Analysis for International Development provides understanding of key concepts from social theory and how these are applied to social development policy and practice. The module Gender Diversity and Social Development explores relations between social development, public policy and various forms of diversity and difference, including gender, race, ethnicity, age and disability. In addition, students also choose whether to focus on Health and Development or Education Policy and Practice in Development.
