Notes

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.

Combined majors option. Once you begin your studies at Trent, the following specialization is also available for you to pursue: Latin American Studies.

Note: Specializations are not declared until after your first year of study.
