Development Studies is a branch of social science which examines issues related to developing countries, especially concerning social and economic development. Peace Studies and Conflict Resolution both aim to identify and analyse the violent and non-violent behaviour that causes social conflict with a view towards creating a more stable world society.
Development Studies involve the study of anthropology, globalisation, economics, environment and international development. At the same time, Peace Studies look at international politics, arms control and proliferation, human rights, politics of the global environment, democracy, religion and politics.
Development Studies graduates will find employment in non-governmental organisations, charitable institutions, local or international government, research, teaching and advisory organisations.
