Global Development Studies offers an exciting opportunity for graduate students to further their academic training in this dynamic research field. Our interdisciplinary training offers a unique Master of Arts degree that builds from core strengths in the political economy of development and the cultural politics of development. In combining course-based learning with close supervision, the program provides students with key conceptual tools and broad thematic knowledge to undertake independent and critical research in a wide range of development issues.

Previous students within the program have used our training and supervision to undertake research on a wide range of themes: from issues of food security, aid policies and climate change to indigenous movements, health care provision and street children. Student projects have also covered a wide range of geographical regions: from Ontario to Bolivia, South Africa to Guatemala.

We offer the flexibility of a one-year course based option and a two-year thesis based option, with a diverse range of courses to supplement our core program.
