DescriptionInternational Development Studies is an interdisciplinary degree program. IDS uses social science disciplines (economics, anthropology, sociology, and political science, together with the contributions of history, management, geography, philosophy, religious studies, and modern languages) to analyze and assess the problems developing countries face as they attempt to improve the living conditions and well- being of their citizens. IDS also analyzes global structures and futures from an interdisciplinary perspective, as human society attempts to come to grips with contemporary socio-economic, political and environmental challenges.

An International Development Studies degree will be useful to those seeking employment in national and international settings, for which knowledge of global development issues, policies, and practices is increasingly needed.
