gaia12 Posted June 3, 2015 Share Posted June 3, 2015 What do you consider to be the top international development studies programs, particularly outside of the United States? I have found many lists, some from blogs or magazines and others from students listing the schools they will apply to. So often, these schools change and are replaced by others I have not even heard of. I recognize each school has their strengths, but which are the strongest overall? Among those, please feel free to speak about particular strengths and weaknesses. These lists are interesting, but very different than what I would have expected. What do you think of them? http://www.topuniversities.com/university-rankings/university-subject-rankings/2015/development-studies- development studies programs https://www.timeshighereducation.co.uk/world-university-rankings/2014-15/subject-ranking/subject/social-sciences- this one is only for social sciences Below are the schools and programs I'll be applying for in the fall, any comments about the schools or programs would be greatly appreciated!: Sciences Po - MSc in Development Studies London School of Economics - MSc Development Management Geneva IHEID - Master in Development Studies University of Sussex - MA Development Studies University of London School of Oriental and African Studies SOAS - MSc Development Studies University of Toronto - MA Political Science of International Development Carleton University - MA International Affairs University of Ottawa - MA Development Studies University of Cape Town - MPhil Sociology (Development Studies) - This will be a backup as the application cycle begins in May.
