Master of Philosophy in Development Studies, specialising in Geography

Are you interested in development issues, developing countries, North-South relations? Would you like to understand the relationship between growth and poverty, globalisation and processes of marginalisation? Would you like to know more about the significance of social changes occurring in poor and developing countries today? Who wins and who loses in the developing process? Then the MPhil in Development Studies, specialising in Geography is the perfect programme for you.

The MPhil in Development Studies, specialising in Geography exposes students to development studies as an interdisciplinary subject. Attention is paid to empirical examples, exercises and assignments built on studies and development strategies of the South. The aim is to provide students from the South with expertise that can be used in the development process in their home countries, and to give students from the North knowledge that will make them capable of assisting the development process, either through working in Norway or abroad. Together this makes a good ground for learning.
