For over thirty years, the International Development and Social Change (IDSC) program has prepared students to tackle the challenges of global poverty, inequity, and injustice. The IDSC program addresses these deep-seated problems through teaching, research, and practice. Students in this program develop the analytical skills necessary to understand the complex relationships among history, politics, development, and power, and the social relations in which they are embedded. The program combines a strong intellectual focus on social theory and its power to explain and critique, with a passion for social, economic, and environmental justice through action.
