This subject explores the theoretical and practical dimensions of global development. By combining conceptual with applied knowledge theoretical frameworks through which real world problems are examined - students are better equipped to address the concerns of the developing world. These include issues of population in relation to available resources, modernity's impact on traditional political and economic systems, food and environmental security, gender disparities, aid and trade, and global business ventures sustainable versus exploitative. Involvement in field projects and/or supervised case studies follows a sound theoretical grounding in the field of global development studies.
