International Development Work
The minor International Development Work focuses on international development issues in a globalizing world. The course content is founded in the relation between international development and social work. Students work on an individual basis or in subgroups on practice related study assignments.The minor program will give (an international classroom of) students the opportunity to expand their repertoire and competencies by learning about theories, approaches,methods and actors in international development work, as well as give them the chance to practice in the field.
For students who want to spend more time "in the field" we offer the exciting opportunity to spend the second part of the minor abroad, working on an extensive fieldproject. The option to go abroad is only open to our Dutch students due to contract obligations with our international partner universities.
Objectives for each course are formulated in an extensive brochure on the minor's program. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to receive the brochure.
