Summary

The MSc Africa and International Development offers a unique opportunity to acquire a combination of interdisciplinary, regional expertise of Africa with a critical knowledge of international development theory, policy and practice.

Our master’s students have the opportunity to join the inclusive group of world-class scholars that make up Edinburgh's Centre of African Studies (CAS), an internationally recognised hub for research and teaching on Africa. We are one of the oldest and largest African Studies centres in Europe and we pride ourselves on undertaking a diverse range of cutting-edge, interdisciplinary research.

How will I learn?

This MSc encourages you to critically explore the burning issues in the context of Africa:

  • Development

  • Social Change

  • Governance

  • Inclusive growth

Africa is a vibrant continent endowed with immense natural and human resources as well as great cultural, ecological and economic diversity. While the continent still faces multidimensional challenges, it also actively shapes current narratives on development as exemplified by the phenomenal rise of digital technologies.
