Our society faces complex, deep-seated challenges, from economic inequality to systemic injustice. We’ll give you the tools you need to overcome them – and help set you on the path to building a better tomorrow.
Our M.A. in International Development and Social Change (IDSC) is offered through Clark’s renowned International Development, Community, and Environment department (IDCE). Our program brings together leading researchers, practitioners, and educators to develop collaborative responses to pressing global issues. Our uniquely transdisciplinary approach will ensure you gain a multifaceted perspective and deep understanding of the many factors affecting cultures, communities, and economies at the local and international scale – ranging from education and development, climate change adaptation and urban regeneration to forced migration, health equity, and gender analysis and identity.
As an IDSC graduate student, you will explore new ways to analyze, engage with, and understand all the major forces of change: grassroots initiatives, social movements, government policy, market approaches, technological innovation, individual action, and education. Our strong emphasis on critical analysis and hands-on practice will ensure you can translate those skills in the field, helping you become an effective, successful driver of social change.
