Comments about Master of Arts in International Development Studies - At the institution - Halifax - Nova Scotia

  • Objectives
    The program brings together Dalhousie's considerable resources in development studies - individual, institutional and informational. We offer an innovative degree program based on established graduate classes in cooperation with the activities of development studies centres on campus, particularly the undergraduate International Development Studies program and the Lester Pearson International Institute. The degree draws heavily, though not exclusively on classes and supervisors in Economics, History, Political Science and Sociology and Social Anthropology. It is offered by the Faculty of Graduate Studies through the International Development Studies Department and has limited enrollment per annum.
