BA (Hons) Sustainable Development and Social Change

Are you interested in finding out how social development is affecting the people who live in the world's poorest countries? Do you want to learn about globalization and consider its impact on the people of Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, the Middle East and Europe? Do you worry about the value of their work?

This course will give you the answers you seek - and much more. There has never been a more pressing time to study Sustainable Development and Social Change. Globalisation continues to impact the world's poorest countries in the global South, and the reaction to globalisation continues to manifest itself in the global North through Brexit and the election of populist leaders. Conflict, climate change, COVID-19 and humanitarian crises all demand a response from the world.

Our course equips you to find your place in this response. You will acquire the skills and knowledge to research and analyse complex problems, to develop your own ideas and plans for a development project and how to fundraise for it, and ultimately to find a career that will give you job satisfaction - being part of changing the world for the better.

We use textbooks and real-world experience, encouraging you to step outside the classroom and study beyond the headlines. We offer you the chance to gain valuable work experience in an NGO, such as Save the Children UK or Otra Cosa (Peru), as a core part of your course.

The extended course is perfect if you want a degree in Sustainable Development and Social Change, but you don’t have the standard entry requirements.
