|Description:||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.|
