The student examines problems of social, economic, and political development in Third World nations. Course content focuses on problems of nation building in the postcolonial era and the role of the developing nations in world politics.

This course will specifically use India and Bangladesh as examples to examine the social, (e.g. Women); economic (e.g. Industrialization, Rural Development, and Microfinance) and political development issues facing less developed nations. In particular, this course will focus on the impacts and the linkages of these changes on societal structures across both nations as a reference point with regard to development generally in the Global South.
