Graduate Studies

International Development Studies (IDS) offers collaborative graduate specializations at the Master's and PhD level.  We offer an interdisciplinary IDS focus to a disciplinary graduate program.

For information about potential careers in the International Development field, please see the 2017 report on Career Paths of IDS Graduates in Canada.  This was a joint CASID/CCUPIDS project by Dr. Rebecca Tiessen (University of Ottawa) and Dr. John Cameron (Dalhousie University).

How does the IDS specialization work?

Students add the IDS specialization through a collaborating (or "home") department that they choose according to their educational background, research interest and work experience.  Visit the IDS Graduate Calendar for a list of required courses for these collaborations.  Below is a list of graduate programs that have collaborated with IDS:
