DEVS Eligible Courses

A list of current and archived DEVS-eligible courses is provided below. Students take courses in other departments and these courses count towards their DEVS degree.  Courses are selected according to their geographic, thematic and disciplinary relevance to the field of global development studies. For an explanation of how these courses are selected, please review the Frequently Asked Questions section of the DEVS website.  If you would like to request that a course from another department at Queen's be considered DEVS-eligible, please complete this form (pdf 44KB) and submit to the DEVS Undergraduate Program Assistant at by May 31. 

Please note that admission to DEVS-eligible courses in other departments depends on having the appropriate requirements and/or permission of the instructor/department.  Due to enrollment pressure from their own students, cognate departments generally block registration to DEVS concentrators in the summer pre-registration period, but then open remaining spaces in the fall.  

Students are advised to move quickly when open registration begins. DEVS as a department is working hard to maximize access to a wide range of DEVS eligible courses, and to work with cognate departments to find creative solutions for current bottlenecks.  We welcome student feedback.
