Welcome to Global Development Studies!

Development Studies is an exciting and evolving interdisciplinary field that examines processes of political, economic and cultural change from the grassroots to the global. What distinguishes the department of Global Development Studies at Queen's is its research-orientated program that combines strong pedagogy with cutting-edge analysis to help students explore what development means and how is it practiced in a complex and changing global context.

Queen’s University is situated on traditional Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee territory.
