International Development Pathway

Studying a Pathway at UWTSD

The International Development pathway is ideal for those who have an interest in exploring global challenges ranging from poverty, environmental, religious and political tensions and would like to find ways of addressing such global concerns.

An International Development pathway will mean that you can study modules regarding international development throughout your degree, alongside your main subject area.  

Students following an international development pathway will study 2 modules of international development each year and 4 modules in the student's chosen Single Honours subject. 

The pathway option is ideal for students who are particularly interested in working within a certain sector and would like to expand their knowledge and skill set. In a world where the job market is increasingly competitive, providing an alternative approach to a student’s degree gives students the confidence and edge over other graduates vying for similar job roles. 

How do I apply for a Pathway? 

To apply, students will need to apply via UCAS through their main subject area.

For example:

Jordan wants to study Philosophy and International Development.

Jordan will apply on UCAS for BA Philosophy.

After the application process, Jordan can opt for the International Development Pathway alongside BA Philosophy. 

What main subjects can I study in the International Development Pathway?

BA Anthropology

Conflict and War

Modern History
