Rural Development is the study of the social, economic, and political situations in the rural areas. Students learn research procedures to understand the needs of rural areas, and are equipped with tools to help develop them. They are taught how to address poverty with innovative agricultural practices, advance science and policies regarding sustainable development, and strengthen small economies in rural areas. Students interested in careers in general education, agriculture, social work, sociology, economics, or research should opt to study rural development.

Courses within rural development studies at Thames are offered under The School of Social Sciences, where students are encouraged to find and read material on rural development, to learn from open discussions and guest lectures as well as examples of development in the global arena. Students at Thames will also be exposed to field work and internship opportunities, which will present them with experience before the join the workplace.
