The Development Studies Nexus track gives students the analytical skills to understand the complexities of global poverty, inequality, and injustice and strategies that state and non-state actors have used to improve the well-being of the people. Through an interdisciplinary set of courses students can explore the relationships among history, politics, economics and power that shape the conditions and choices that developing countries and marginalized people around the globe face. Ultimately, the track enables students to engage thoughtfully with the development endeavor, and to imagine ways to promote social, economic, and environmental justice from the personal to the global scale.
