Population Studies and Development Studies
We currently offers two course-work Masters Degrees, in Development Studies and Population Studies, as well as a research-based PhD programme, and a research-based Masters programme. Full-time or part-time study is catered for but no distance learning is offered.
Students are offered the opportunity to study development in a world class School in a developing country setting. This enables them to match what they learn in the classroom with what they experience on the ground. Students from South Africa, other African countries, Asia, Europe and North America are regularly attracted to our programme. The School welcomes mature international students with different experiences of the world since they add another dimension to discussions.
