"Global Development in a Changing World"

“Global Development in a Changing World” explores international development, challenging conventional ways of thinking on the topic. Students will move from theoretical discussions of international development to applying this knowledge to the development policy cycle. Working to answer real-world development questions about development and international aid, students will learn data software, enabling them to collect and analyze large development data sets. Students will employ evidence to address the policy cycle at major international aid agencies.
