Distance Learning for Development Course Portal | DL4D
DL4D provides high-quality postgraduate training to those working in the field of international development. This site has information on over 140 short courses available to study at a distance. They cover the range of skills and knowledge areas expected of the international development professional.
The Master’s degree programme in Development and Governance
The programme combines teaching in several political science sub-disciplines with a practice-oriented methodology including an internship with a German (development) organisation. The main emphasis is on acquiring knowledge of the relevance of different tiers and forms of governance-processes (local, national, international) both within the established democracies and the developing societies, and on training students’ analytical skills. The programme is thus providing students with both policy- and region-specific expertise.
