Hi,

I can tell you a bit about UEA...

Our International Social Development course involves three compulsory modules: Social Analysis for International Development, Gender Diversity and Social Development and a Research Dissertation on a subject of your choice.
Then you choose from a long list of modules such as Educational Policy and Practice, Health and Development, Research Methods/Evaluation Methods, Climate Change, Globalisation Business and Development, Media and Development, Political Ecology of Environment and many more. So you can see that the course is very flexible.

We offer a series of regular seminars on ‘Working in Development’, with guest speakers from development agencies. Also our graduates have been successful in entering a broad spectrum of employment including working for organisations such as the World Bank, the United Nations, DfID, JICA, Christian Aid, and Save the Children.

UEA is a really friendly place to study with a community feel to the campus. The high-class teaching staff and research contributes to the fantastic student experience.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Hannah
