The department offers an interdisciplinary Master of Arts degree in the field of Global Development Studies. The focus of our program is academic training for development research. To do so, we presently two parallel streams:
Students do not choose between these streams at the point of application. Instead, all students are admitted into the course-based stream with guaranteed funding for one year. Subsequently, those students interested in entering the research-based stream can apply for entry once they have begun their studies in the department (i.e. during the Fall term).
Entry into the research-based stream is dependent on strong grades (an average of at least A- / 80% / 3.7GPA), a clear research project, and close supervisory support from a faculty member.
