Masters of Science in Development Studies
2 Years - Full-time Program


MS Development Studies (Dev. Studies) is a multi and inter-disciplinary program that explores critical topics of development theory and practices, introducing development as a process of evolution of societies. Development Studies is also a policy debate that takes into account the specificity of societies in terms of history, ecology, culture, technology, politics, etc., and how these differences both can and often should translate into varied ‘local’ responses to regional or global processes, and varied strategies of development and methods.

The program is designed for 2 years, however, the maximum time allowed to complete the degree is 4 years. Students will only be admitted as full-time during the coursework. Classes will be scheduled any day from Monday to Saturday between 9 am and 9 pm.
