Who benefits from genetically-modified crops and whether there is enough water for people to survive the 21st century are just two of the pressing issues examined by the MA in Science, Society and Development for 2008 at the Institute of Development Studies.

The study of science and society is among the liveliest fields in higher education and one of the fastest growing research areas worldwide. The MA in Science, Society and Development focuses on the most vital health, environment and agricultural concerns of today. But it adds a unique new element: how can science and technology best contribute to poverty reduction, social justice and environmental sustainability in the developing world?

The MA focuses on practical and policy questions and combines a solid grounding in development theories with an understanding of the politics and governance of scientific knowledge and policy.

Based in the Knowledge, Technology and Society (KNOTS) Team at IDS, the course is linked to the major new global research hub, the Social, Technological and Environmental Pathways to Sustainability Centre (STEPS).

Two full scholarships are available in 2008 for African Students.

IDS at the University of Sussex is one of the world’s leading organisations for research, teaching and communications on international development. Founded in 1966, the Institute enjoys an international repuation based on the quality of its work and the intellectual rigour with which it applies acaemic skills to real world policy challenges. Its purpose is to understand and explain the world, and to try to change it – to influence as well as to inform.
