The International Development BA offers a distinctive approach to the study of development by concentrating on the middle-income countries responsible for driving changes in the global economy. Students will examine how the ‘emerging economies’ are promoting economic, social and political development as well as growth in new and often innovative ways. The course is delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars and independent study. Students will explore the challenges facing rising economic powers such as India, China and Brazil as well as other countries which have recently experienced considerable economic growth and social and political change such as Indonesia, Chile, Peru, Mexico, Nigeria and South Africa. The course also considers what lessons these experiences offer for other countries and regions. Students on the International Development with a Year Abroad BA will spend their third year studying abroad before returning to complete a final year with King's. Students on the three year course may transfer to the four year International Development with a Year Abroad BA. In both cases studying abroad will be dependent on levels of achievement in first and second year modules.
