About this course

What will I learn?

The International Development program provides students with an opportunity to pursue interdisciplinary and comparative studies of long-term change and international inequality.

A broad coverage of the process of international development, from the perspectives of history and social science, forms the basis for more in-depth study on such topics as economic development, the environment, gender, agriculture and rural life, politics and administration, and the Latin American region.

The primary participating departments are Economics, Geography, Political Science, and Sociology and Anthropology.

Engage with the world, combine exploration of the complex economic and social changes that are happening across the world with the opportunity to focus on an area of emphasis that is close to your own interests.
