International Development Studies - MA/MSc

Course content

Since 1991 International Development Studies (IDS) at Guelph has successfully linked together various discipline-based Master’s programs on campus to provide a focal point for graduate teaching and research on international development topics. Students and faculty from different disciplines study the contemporary problems of poverty and inequality, as well as long-term change and cross-cultural comparisons, through a variety of disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches. Our faculty has expertise in a wide range of development-related areas such as international political economy, food security, environment and development, and gender.

Our Students
Our students represent a wide diversity in cultural and academic backgrounds. We have students from Canada, from other OECD countries and from all parts of the global South. Most entrants to the specialization have already travelled or worked internationally. Typically, they share one or more of three goals: an academic interest in better understanding the sources of international inequality, (under-) development and the process and strategies for change; the acquisition of specific knowledge in order to enter the field of international development; and mid-career education/training in the development field. Our graduates hold positions in government in Canada and abroad with NGOs, international organizations and private consultancies. Many enter PhD programs.
