Trent Universities IDST courses are theoretically grounded and at the same time address real-world policy initiatives. Our aim is to reach a balance between theory and practice, while challenging students to rethink conventional wisdom about international development. Several upper year courses include an experiential learning component, which provides hands-on experience and an entry point into the job market. Through such an approach, students acquire critical thinking skills that serve them well not just in the Department of International Development Studies, but in their other courses, as well.
