Discipline of Development Studies, School of Built Environment and Development Studies, the University of KwaZulu-Natal

As part of a larger re-organization of academic schools in 2012, the School of Development Studies has been incorporated into the School of Built Environment and Development Studies together with the schools of Community Development, Architecture Planning and Housing. Each of these, with the addition of Population Studies will operate as a discipline in the new School. The Centre for Civil Society will continue to be part of the new school. Development Studies and Population Studies aim to be a world leaders in the study of the political economy of development and demography, and in the pursuit through research, training and activism of social and economic justice, both locally and globally.


Under the Discipline of Development Studies in the School of Built Environment and Development Studies, at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, we currently offers two course-work Masters Degrees, in Development Studies and Population Studies, as well as a research-based PhD programme, and a research-based Masters programme.
