The University of Sheffield, UK is inviting applications for its new Global Sustainable Development BA course starting in September 2023.
Taking an interdisciplinary focus on global and international development, this course examines worldwide issues through the lens of social justice and environmental sustainability.
Explore contemporary global issues, linking current affairs, climate change and activism and equip with the skills to pursue a career in sustainable development and to become a global problem solver.
Through professional skills training, practical research experience, policy engagement and analysis, students will be prepared for employment in the public, private or third sector. Graduates can anticipate pursuing careers in the UK and overseas to tackle pressing global sustainability and development priorities.
In the first year, students will learn the history and key debates of global development and how challenges of environment, inequality and sustainability are addressed through local and global policy.
Students will develop their research skills and learn about critical perspectives on global sustainable development in the second year. They will also have the opportunity to tailor their degree to their interests by taking a range of relevant interdisciplinary modules spanning economics, geography, politics and sociology.
In the final year, students will learn more about global sustainable development on the ground and in practice. They will develop their professional skills and also undertake independent research for a dissertation on a specialist topic of their choice and further tailor their degree through a range of relevant optional modules.
