Global Development is an interdisciplinary major program that investigates the causes, consequences, and the possible solutions to underdevelopment and poverty that is evident in the developing countries of the world. It employs an integrated set of theoretical perspectives from Economics, Political Science, Sociology and Anthropology, and other disciplines to study the underpinnings of global development and sustainability. A major in Global Development prepares impassioned and innovative students to transcend national boundaries in tackling the complex issues of a globalizing economy and thereby become game-changers in global development. They consider a variety of local perspectives to understand development within socio-economic and political contexts, and wrestle with questions on how to make development work. Their aim is to create opportunity for future generations to increase their well-being without harm to others and the planet. These resolute students typically work in the context of the developing world, either on-site or through their analytical lenses.
