Working towards a fair world

Is it really possible for everyone to profit equally from development while still respecting the environment? In our view it is. Through fair trade, equal rights, and equal opportunities we believe that a healthy balance between people, earth and prosperity can be achieved.

The specialisations within our Bachelor of International Development give you the knowledge and motivation to take steps towards promoting this balance. In your study programme, you can opt to focus on reconstructing society after natural disasters or contributing to fair economic chains from raw material to consumer. In both cases, you will learn to bring people together and defend interests, and to facilitate and support developments and innovation.

You will also learn more about geography, biology and economics. You learn about intercultural communication, international cooperation, the green economy, reconstruction after disasters, strengthening the position of farmers, fair trade, business administration, and project management.

You will be following objective specific courses, doing practical periods and preparing an exciting graduation assignment. In the third or fourth year you will make a choice out of many available minors. A minor is actually a short course of your own choice. It can be specialistic or broad, in which case it can add to your interests and talents.

The programme is competency based: each theoretical subject supports workgroup situations in which students tackle practical problems and explore workable solutions. This means that you will be active from day one, learning to work independently as you collaborate with others. The programme culminates in practical placements and a thesis project conducted in an international setting.
