International Development and Global Politics

Why Study International Development and Global Politics at UWTSD?

UWTSD’s International Development and Global Politics degree programmes are unique in their offering, as they encompass three topics – International Development, Humanitarianism, and Law - that will equip each student with a comprehensive understanding, knowledge and, crucially, the skills to face the major global challenges of the 21st century.

Increasingly organisations within the charitable and NGO sector are seeking employees who have a strong understanding and experience of the sector. With this in mind, UWTSD’s suite of International Development programmes provide both theoretical and practical experience. There is also an opportunity for placements overseas, or with relevant development organisations at home, which will enable students to see first hand how development NGOs work.
