Global Development Studies

The degree modules offered in Global Development Studies examine ways in which our world is structured and functions around profound inequalities, particularly in terms of poverty. This stream of studies focuses on how deep material inequalities result in power imbalances and the formation of oppressive social, political, and economic ideas and practices presented as “development.” In learning how to critically analyse these inequalities and to conduct socially responsible research in community contexts, students in these modules will learn to collaborate effectively with grassroots efforts to challenge and overcome these injustices.
