Learning outcomes

Introduce the concept of international development and explore its various meanings and contexts. Broaden and deepen students' understanding of development theory. Give students the tools to critically analyze and understand the reasoning behind development practice.


International development is a relatively new concept rooted in a long history of thought that has shaped our current understanding. This course examines the evolution of what has been understood as development. Current development theory will be situated into this history to give students perspective and the necessary tools to understand and approach development analytically. This course lays the foundation for development in practice.
