Apa yang akan saya pelajari?

The Bachelor of Arts in Global Development Studies (GDS) is a broadly interdisciplinary program designed to equip students with the critical academic knowledge, skills and experience required to function effectively as development professionals in Canada or abroad or to continue on to graduate or other professional studies.

In addition to learning history and theory of development processes, and analyzing current global practices, international or domestic internships provide opportunities to make contacts and build skills.

The program:

  • Equips you with strong advocacy, problem-solving, research, and writing skills.
  • Promotes intercultural dialogue locally and abroad by drawing on topics in economics, political science, anthropology, sociology and communications.
  • Presents unique internship opportunities with development organizations in Canada and internationally so you can apply what you learn in a global context.
  • Develops focused disciplinary knowledge and skills by fulfilling requirements for a minor or an interdisciplinary concentration.
  • Grounds you in the history and theory of global development processes and examines current debates in development practice.

CAREER EXPECTATIONS

Global development is a well-funded industry: 2013 saw a new world record of USD 134.8 billion in official development assistance (ODA). And ODA is only 28% of all official and private flows from the 29 member countries of the OECD’s Development Assistance Committee (DAC).

International development offers a diverse range of career opportunities in administration, research, fundraising, training, advocacy, and relief work. You could find yourself working for government agencies, international organizations, NGOs, private companies, or research institutes.

Adding specialized qualifications, such as logistics, urban planning, accounting, nursing, agriculture, or IT, to your Bachelor of Arts in Global Development Studies can boost your employment opportunities in international development. With substantial field experience, you may find freelance work as a trainer, consultant, or advisor.
