Development Economics

The field of development economics is intended to ground students in a variety of analytical perspectives on the development process. The required core course, Development Economics, concentrates on central themes including global poverty, growth, and the role of policies towards agriculture and trade. Other courses in the field complement this broad perspective, addressing such issues as nutrition and rural development, microeconomic poverty interventions, international finance, and political economy.

This field is closely linked to the Certificate in International Development.
