Examine theories and practices of current concepts, challenges, and debates in development studies in the dynamic context of Uganda.
This program will introduce you to the social, political, economic, and environmental issues of development in Uganda. You will examine development theories from Ugandan perspectives, consider the historical context in which current development is taking place, and experience development in practice through engagement with local projects and practitioners. You will conduct a field-based research project or a hands-on internship with an international or grassroots development agency.
You can choose to complete an internship during the last six weeks of this program. For this internship, you will be placed with a local Ugandan organization where you will gain real work experience related to the program’s theme and develop professional skills you can use in your career.
