International Development Studies

Why Major in IDS?

An IDS degree is a launching point for a career in law, community development, humanitarian aid, disaster response, public policy, and non-profit management.

IDS is a strong fit for students who want to learn about creating sustainable change in the world, and aren’t afraid to step out of their comfort zones.

Within the IDS field, students look at the economic, political and historical forces that shape poverty and inequality.
