MSc International Development and Humanitarian EmergenciesLondon School of Economics and Political Science
This programme focuses on understanding the dynamics of humanitarian and complex emergencies as well as providing a solid foundation in development issues such as poverty reduction, wealth creation and the expansion of human capabilities.
This is a flexible programme that provides you with academically rigorous graduate-level interdisciplinary training in the fields of international development and humanitarianism. While the core course, Key Issues in Development Studies, and Managing Humanitarianism provide an excellent overview of the key issues and debates in international development, optional courses enable you to shape your studies to your own needs and interests.
A valuable part of the programme is the humanitarian consultancy project, where you work in a small team on a current policy issue for a humanitarian, development or emergency based organisation. Past clients have included UNICEF, UNHCR, the UK Disasters Emergency Committee, DFID, International Alert, the ICRC, MSF, NATO, the UK Army and Save the Children. This exposure to the real world of organisations and practitioners is an excellent experience which will boost your employability.
