Program Information
Faculty: Faculty of Arts and Science
Degree: Master
Field of Study: International/Global Studies
Description The department of Global Development Studies at Queen's is one of the premier locations in Canada for conducting research in the field of development studies. Using a variety of interdisciplinary methods, our faculty ask what development means and how is it practiced in an increasingly complex and evolving global context. With a core emphasis on questions of social justice, we explore this exciting and evolving field by examining processes of political, economic and cultural change from the grassroots to the global. Our Master's program combines these key concerns with strong pedagogy and cutting-edge research to enable students to undertake their own explorations of issues and controversies in the field. Building from departmental strengths in the political economy of development and the cultural politics of development, we offer a stimulating environment in which to conduct research and engage in cross-cultural learning experiences. Our students work on diverse subjects that link the global North and the global South, ranging from trade, aid and finance through to cultural production, gender and indigenous studies.
