About International Development


The international development minor is an interdisciplinary program that in its organizational structure reflects the complex and multidimensional nature of development. Students learn that each discipline defines and carries out development principles in different ways. Required and supplemental courses are constructed from departments across campus and currently accommodates students from over fifty majors.

International development emphasizes poor and less-developed societies. It includes academic disciplines, such as education, political economy, health care, social innovation, infrastructure, agricultural productivity, nutrition, ecological preservation, and evaluation research. Development implies raising the level and quality of life throughout the "underdeveloped" world.
