International Developement

The Bachelor of Arts in International Development degree program is designed to prepare students for a career serving a diverse urban and rural population through economic development, social progress, and community outreach with a social science perspective. To meet this objective, graduates will demonstrate the ability to analyze data, prepare reports, make presentations, and work as part of a team. The degree tackles diverse topics such as social anthropology, human rights, and economic theory but also gives students the option of taking natural resource modules that examine the sustainability and the governance of issues such as soils, water, food production, and fisheries. Specializations available in International Development, Physiotherapy, and Human Resources. Required courses for the various specializations are listed below and must be substituted for a course of the same level.
