GDS is a broadly interdisciplinary program designed to equip students with the critical academic knowledge, skills and experience required to function effectively as development professionals in Canada or abroad or to continue on to graduate or other professional studies.

The Global Development Studies Curriculum is structured so as to give students:

  • a sound basis in a range of essential skills
  • a solid grasp of the history and theory of development processes and an appreciation of current debates in development practice
  • an opportunity to develop skills and make contacts through a service learning (internship) component
  • an opportunity to develop focused disciplinary knowledge and skills by fulfilling requirements for a minor or an interdisciplinary concentration
