The SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) run through our modules. This provides a contemporary stance on where the world stands today at building a better world for people and our planet by 2030. You will explore, and gain understanding of current debates around how education contributes to the development process.

Learning through case studies will cultivate your ability to think critically about development issues.
