Development Studies is a branch of social science which examines issues related to developing countries, especially concerning social and economic development. Peace Studies and Conflict Resolution both aim to identify and analyse the violent and non-violent behaviour that causes social conflict with a view towards creating a more stable world society.
Development Studies involves the study of anthropology, globalisation, economics, environment and international development, while Peace Studies looks at international politics, arms control and proliferation, human rights, politics of the global environment, democracy, religion and politics.
Development Studies graduates will find employment in non-governmental organisations, charitable institutions, local or international government, research, teaching and advisory organisations.
Entry requirements vary for each Canadian university, but students will need an IELTS score of 6.5 overall, no lower than 6.0 in each component, and an International Baccalaureate score of 34 points.
