Welcome to an international Master’s programme that teaches you how to analyse and define the problems of rural development and natural resource management in a global context. Attracting students from all over the world, the courses included in the programme will give you in-depth understanding of rural livelihoods, governance of natural resources, food systems and power inequalities so that you can use your knowledge to have a positive impact on development, poverty and climate change.
This 2-year programme investigates these subjects in the context of societal development and offers opportunities for both broadened and in-depth studies. At the end of the programme you will have gained a deeper insight into development issues with a social science perspective on natural resources and globalisation.
With a Master’s degree in rural development, your skills will be in demand and you will be equipped to start an academic career in a ministry, government agency, an international organisation, or in aid. You will also be able to continue your studies towards a PhD.
