  • Aims and contents

    Learning from the field experience is brought to the literature and informs theory. Students who complete Development Studies I and Development Studies II can apply to continue their studies and complete a Bachelor degree in Development Studies at OsloMet.

    In addition to a three week field work period, there is a programme of lectures around the four core themes, taught through an interdisciplinary social science/humanistic approach incorporating elements of history, geography, social anthropology, political science, economics and sociology. The course activities (lectures, seminars, assignments, examination) as well as the literature are all in English.
