International Development Emphasis

The International Development emphasis is recommended for students who wish to study development issues and policies, as preparation for careers with business, government agencies, Non-Governmental Organizations, foreign aid contractors, and Relief Organizations involved in working in Developing Countries.

When completing an International Development emphasis, in addition to the basic requirements (Int. Stds 205 and 402), the student must take the courses described below, and may take as many upper-level elective courses from Course List 2 to complete the major's credit and discipline distribution requirements.

Please consult your International Studies advisor, who will help you to maximize the many potential inter-locking related majors and minors, and ensure that these are completed in time. The earlier you consult with your advisor, the more options you will be able to pursue.
