What do I do with a DEVS degree?
A degree in Global Development Studies leads to a wide range of career choices and options for further study. A global perspective gives students a comprehensive view of the world, while our interdisciplinary focus exposes students to fields as diverse as economics, health studies, politics, media, religion and history. Work placements offer further opportunities to gain experience in the field and to network internationally.
Our alumni are working throughout the world and across Canada. Many choose to work with development agencies such as CIDA and Amnesty International, or with United Nations bodies. Some are involved in policy making with governments. Others have gone into journalism, television and documentary film making. A number of graduates have become teachers in Canada and abroad, and many have completed professional degrees in law or business. Some have continued in academia and are now professors themselves. Several students have started their own non-profit development agencies and many are working in the private sector in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
