About the Major
At UCLA, an interdisciplinary approach to the study of international development enables students to address urgent global issues from several different academic perspectives. Ranging from anthropology to economics, from public health to women's studies, and from geography to history, and political science to sociology, our curriculum exposes students to the issues, problems, and policies connected to the struggles of underdeveloped nations. An understanding of these issues is indispensable for both practical and scholarly purposes. While encouraging the acquisition of theoretical and conceptual knowledge, the program is equally concerned with their practical application to global realities. The program values field experience involving travel, study and/or work in regions in the Third World.
