Master of International Development Practice

The Master of International Development Practice is designed to address the complex political, economic, cultural and ecological challenges contributing to extreme poverty, reduced health, environmental vulnerability and fragile governance, factors that affect the wellbeing of millions of people worldwide. These multidimensional challenges require professionals with the practical skills and analytical capacity to help build resilience to economic, political and environmental vulnerabilities both nationally and at the community level.

Designed with career outcomes in mind

The program is oriented to career building in areas such as human rights advocacy, aid agencies in government and non-government sectors, the Fair Trade business sector, community organisations, and international institutions such as the United Nations and the World Bank.

Interdisciplinary approach

Broad interdisciplinary content is drawn from Arts, Law, Business and Economics, Medicine and Education.
