Why study IDS at Dalhousie?

Some of the biggest movements for social change have started on university campuses. Why stop now? International Development Studies at Dalhousie teaches you how to be a responsible and informed global citizen.

Whether they work in the local community or internationally, we teach students to think critically and act on a global scale. Our program tries to find solutions to big problems. We want our students to act, to reflect on their actions and to put both into a larger framework of development theory.
