PGCert - Development Studies as a subject

Postgraduate certificates and diplomas provide the opportunity for continuing professional development in the same area as an original degree. A postgraduate diploma can often lead to a master's degree.

The Development Studies programme will enable you to explore and critically examine recent tensions, concepts, models, policies, processes and outcomes of 'development' from the perspectives and experiences of indigenous peoples.
