The graduate certificate in international development gives students the opportunity to develop specialized expertise in the theories, issues, actors, problems, and solutions facing countries and other actors undergoing the development process. Coursework will expose you to the challenges that issues such as poverty, hunger, conflict, human rights and sustainability cause in developing countries. You will learn to identify and analyze the concepts, factors and issues related to international development; compare the political, economic and social conditions in developed versus developing countries; and apply the major theories of international relations to current and historical issues in international development.

This certificate may be earned while completing the MA in International Relations or as a stand-alone graduate certificate, where available.
