International Development, Minor

The International Development minor is intended for students who wish to complement their primary area of study with an interdisciplinary focus on complex social problems associated with international development. The minor is intended to expand a student’s chosen major by focusing on critical development issues from several different academic perspectives. Approved courses emphasize problems of development in poor countries and poorer regions of wealthier countries. The interdisciplinary nature of the minor allows students to embrace a global perspective on the processes of change and development, critically assess internal and external influences on the development process, and gain a deeper perspective on the interconnectedness of complex problems.
