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.
