Medial in DEVS  (DEVS-A-BAH)

The Medial degree is intended for students who would like a strong concentration in Global Development Studies in combination with an equally strong concentration in another discipline. Medial degrees can be completed with most other departments in Arts and Science. Students apply to the Medial plan after their first year in Arts and Science and should have completed DEVS 100. 

For students who entered the DEVS plan after May 1, 2019, a DEVS Medial consists of 45 units in DEVS and DEVS-Eligible-Language courses as outlined in the chart below or on the Faculty of Arts and Science webpage.
