Global Development

Are you passionate about confronting inequality? Tackling injustice? And solving global challenges? Global Development at Queen Mary examines pressing issues from pandemics to international law and forced displacement. This innovative interdisciplinary programme draws from expertise in the Schools of Geography, History, Politics and International Relations, Languages, Linguistics and Film. Discover cutting edge perspectives on development in theory and practice as you prepare to confront our changing world. You will debate development theory, explore evidence-based responses to major world issues, and learn the interdisciplinary tools you need to create positive change.
My journey at Queen Mary University has been wonderful. Global development studies have shaped my academic approach to matters pertaining to our global landscape. It has always been my dream to find work in not-for-profit organisations i.e., united Nations, or UNICEF, etc- organisations that champion humanitarian matters. I do not hesitate to advice new students to choose the right course, also having sense of purpose in their studies to achieve their goals. Most importantly, working collaboratively with other students and university instructors is the key to success.
