International Development Studies

The goal of the International Development Studies Program is to produce graduates who will become development practitioners - catalysts and facilitators for change in developing contexts. We approach the study of international development from a multidisciplinary perspective, combining theory, methods, practical application, and technical concentration. Students build upon a required core while specializing in one of five concentrations:

  • Development and Environment
  • Development and Gender
  • Development and Health
  • Development and the Social Sciences
  • Development and Sports

Founded in 1977 as the Development Studies Program, the International Development Studies Program at Ohio University offers a diverse and stimulating atmosphere for students who have a background and interest in the social, natural sciences, and health sciences, and wish to apply this interest and learning to international development.
