Development Studies Option (Interdisciplinary and Collaborative Programs) (M.A.)

Program Information
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Development Economics and International Development
Description It is with great pleasure that we announce the launching of the new Development Studies Option (DSO) at McGill University. The DSO is a cross-disciplinary M.A. program that is unique in Canada, if not the world, because it is designed to provide students with a strong practical and theoretical foundation for engaging in genuinely cross-disciplinary research. Successful applicants to the DSO must first be admitted into the MA programs of one of six participating departments: * Anthropology; * Economics; * Geography; * History; * Political Science; and * Sociology. These students will complete the regular requirements of their departments for a Masters degree, as well as the additional cross-disciplinary requirements for the DSO. The DSO is a reflection of McGill University’s long-standing tradition of research and education in international development. Within the six participating departments alone, there are approximately 30 professors and 100 graduate students currently working on development issues - undoubtedly one of the largest concentrations of development scholars and students at any university in Canada. Researchers in these units have well-established international reputations and are recognized by their peers as leaders in their fields.
