MS in Development Studies consists of multiple topics including quantitative methods, a solid multi-disciplinary social science formation in theory, and applications employed in multiple fields of societal development.  

As per the dean of the School of Economics and Social Sciences, Dr. Asma Hyder, the programme will let students participate in exploring critical topics of development theory and practice so that they can link historical perspectives with recent advancements in development.
