Course Summary:
If you are interested in the impact of globalisation on international development and how development and globalisation impact on the environment, then this is the degree for you. It will give you a broad understanding of challenging issues ranging across social and cultural geography, environment and development studies. The programme is ideal if you want a flexible evening course that allows you to explore and deepen your personal or professional interest in development and globalisation, without putting your life on hold. You will choose from a wide range of modules that respond to the demands of today's workplace and are linked to the research interests of our staff. You also complete a piece of research or a literature review in an area of special interest to you. This programme gives you the opportunity to study with internationally recognised experts who are defining the field with their groundbreaking research. You will also benefit from our mix of classroom and field-based teaching allowing you to build social and professional networks, and to develop important skills in data collection and analysis. You will develop the social and technical skills you need for both academic research and the modern workplace. This programme is also available for part-time evening study over four years. **HIGHLIGHTS** - We offer multiple approaches to the study of societies and cultures, human geography, and sustainability, poverty and development, as well as community and citizenship, at local, regional and global levels. - One of the unique strengths of our Department of Geography is the breadth of research interests of our staff. Subsequently, we offer a very wide range of courses that reflect the disciplinary breadth of development and globalisation, while also allowing you to engage with other disciplines, such as anthropology and sociology. - You will be surrounded by committed fellow students from all cultures, backgrounds and career stages who are eager to share their experience and expertise with their peers. - We have strong links with the London International Development Centre, which can enhance your employability. - Ours is a vibrant research culture, powered by a shared passion for learning and intellectual engagement among our academics and students. We have a strong commitment to social justice, which informs and shapes much of our cutting-edge research.

A fantastic university! The tutors and support staff were really great, down to earth and approachable and really understanding of the work/life balance that proves a bit hard to juggle! The library was also fantastic, full of resources and with plenty of study space so you can catch up with coursework and so on. There’s a really nice, focussed vibe here and everyone is very welcoming too, which was reassuring. Living in the Intercollegiate halls was also an amazing experience, I met so many new exciting and interesting people doing all sorts of things! I heartily recommend Birkbeck.
