The master's programme Global and Development Studies is a pluralistic, social science programme with elements from e.g. economics, political science, sociology, anthropology and law.Among other things, the programme deals with the fact that global society is increasingly interconnected economically, politically, culturally, environmentally, etc., and that the North-South concept of development today is insufficient to understand observed changes in the global and social order.As a graduate you have the tools to investigate and report to relevant actors on how international and global phenomena affect a given issue, such as international security, rights, climate change, social sustainability or green transition.Graduates typically work for regional, national and international authorities and organisations (including ministries and embassies), international development and aid organisations, civil society organisations and NGOs, private companies, think-tanks and consulting firms. They take jobs as country, policy, military and market analysts and development and project consultants.
