Fall 2021

Global Development Studies

GDS 100: A World of Development

GDS 250: Sociology of Development: Global South

GDS 260: Gender and Global Development  *NEW for F2021*

Learn how governments, organizations, and community groups around the world (including Canada) are addressing the human rights of women, girls, and other marginalized groups.  Explore why gender inequalities exist, their impacts, and how gender intersects with other social identities to result in intersectional inequalities. Understand the importance of gender equality and women’s empowerment in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the Canadian government’s Feminist International Assistance Policy. Build your gender analysis skills (e.g. GBA+) by collaborating with NGOs in Canada and abroad to carry out research, evaluations, proposals, and communications.  Fulfil your BA degree requirements for civic engagement. The skills and knowledge you will gain are in high demand in social, political, economic, health, and environmental sectors.
