MPhil International Development Studies

The MPhil in Development Studies is designed to provide students with an experience of conducting rigorous research in the area of development. The MPhil provides an inter-disciplinary training that keeps focus on complex and continuous changes in development realities in the global south. It covers the comprehensive debates in development and critical development literature. The main goal of this program is to bridge the gap between research and sustainable development in the global south.

Students will take ten (10) courses; this is made up of five core courses in development, two elective courses in development, a research methods, a research design course, and a language course. At the beginning of the second year, students would be assigned to research supervisors who will guide them through the research project of their choice.

As part of the requirement for graduation, students would submit a publishable thesis being the result of work done on an identifiable local development organization such as youth groups, women groups, conflict management organizations, etc.

The program is an excellent preparation for a career in Teaching, development research and further studies.
