Major or Minor in International Development and Social Change

Study solutions to global poverty, inequity and injustice

Designed for practitioners of grassroots, community-based development, this program gives you tools to promote equitable development and sustain environmental resources through critical thought, local planning and action. As an International Development and Social Change major, you learn ways to grapple with the social, political, economic and cultural dynamics shaping and transforming our world.

Through classwork and community-based learning, you obtain a deep understanding of the forces of social change: grass roots initiatives, social movements, government policy, market approaches, entrepreneurship, technological innovation, individual action and education. Not simply thinkers, our students are doers who are prepared to tackle the challenges of global inequity and injustice.
