International Development Studies

In International Development Studies you will study the social and political issues shaping the world today including refugees, poverty, human security, global health and climate change.

You will discover how communities, societies and governments struggle to solve local problems that have global effects. You will learn about what has been tried, what has failed, and what is working.

Imagine your future

International Development Studies helps you prepare for a career that makes a difference at home or halfway across the world, by working for governments, international organizations, businesses or local community groups.

A 2017 survey of International Development Studies graduates across Canada found above-average employment rates and high levels of career satisfaction.
