One of the most unique and dynamic programs found at U of T Scarborough, International Development Studies is a multidisciplinary study of how and why countries develop differently from each other. It ties together fields like Geography, Political Science, Anthropology, Environmental Science, Economics and Development Studies to make it a truly unique academic discipline. Students will not only delve into the many disciplines that contribute to the development of nations, but learn how to tie each discipline together to analyze, prescribe, and engage development problems such as poverty, inequality, environmental degradation, governance and urbanization. Students will not only learn the complex dynamics of development theory, but will be given practical experience that is essential to professional development.
Co-op International Development Studies is available under a separate admission category (HBA and HBSc).
