Concentration and Program Director: Amy Damon (Economics)

The concentration in international development provides students with a series of classes which examine long-run transitions in social, economic, political, and cultural institutions that have accompanied industrialization in modern states, particularly focusing on states in the Global South. The concentration seeks to understand how these historical and contemporary shifts affect people’s welfare and opportunities and further how change has affected patterns of wealth and resource distribution within and between countries.
