About the course

An education in Development Studies will increase your understanding for political, economic, and social development in a global perspective. At Uppsala University, Development Studies is offered at the Department of Government, which gives it a clear political science profile, with a focus on the politics of development, good governance, and policy analysis. In this way, Development Studies at Uppsala University addresses the increasing demand for political science competence on the international labour market.

Courses in Development Studies provide knowledge about the basic theoretical development discourses as well as about reality-based development challenges. The aim is to contribute with nuanced analytical perspectives on development processes in national, regional, and international contexts.

Development Studies A focuses on fundamental development questions about democracy and governance, sustainable development, gender equality, and poverty. The course is divided into four parts.
