International Development (ID)

Interdisciplinary Program

Academic Advisor: Room 045 MacKinnon Building, ext 6175.

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 growth, the biophysical environment, women, agriculture and rural life, politics, administration and the Latin American region.

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