Om uddannelsen

Global

Bachelor in Global Development studies

Are you interested in understanding the dynamics of poverty, inequality and power? Do you want to know more about the main critical issues and challenges in the development of the 21st century?

The bachelor’s programme in global development studies at UiA provides a thorough understanding of these issues and the complex interconnections of culture, globalisation, migration, international and national power structures, economic interests, and resource control and management.

Outcome 

The three-year study programme aims to create an increased understanding of the conditions that lead to differences in social and economic development in various countries and regions.

Its goal is to provide knowledge of global relations and development processes from an interdisciplinary perspective and social science point of view. This study program provides the students with a theoretical social scientific background and field experiences related to questions of development, international relations, development cooperation and change processes in a global context.

Course structure 

Our courses provide a critical introduction to the complexities of development processes. You will get theoretical knowledge and practical experiences and insights. 

In the second semester, you will have the possibility to go on a field course to a country in Africa, Asia or Latin America. In addition, in the fourth semester, you will also have the option to go on exchange. 

In the final semester, you will spend three months doing fieldwork for the bachelor’s thesis. Here you can choose among our partner universities in the Global South or present your own idea for potential development related fieldwork in a given country. Through the combination of theoretical work and practical field courses and experiences, you will have a great opportunity of understanding a complex and changing world.
