TRAINING: MA Science, Society and Development (IDS)
Focusing on such pressing practical and policy questions in health, environment and agriculture, the MA Science, Society and Development program provides students with a solid grounding in development concepts and theories, in combination with an understanding of the politics and governance of scientific knowledge and policy processes. Through exploring a combination of theoretical and practical perspectives, the course asks how science and technology can contribute to poverty reduction, social justice and environmental sustainability in the developing world.
The Institute of Development Studies (IDS) at the University of Sussex, UK, and the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission are offering two full scholarships in 2008-09 for students from Commonwealth countries in Africa.
