Anthropology of Development

The Anthropology of Development stream examines economic, political, social and cultural development around the world using the local perspective of ethnography. This stream complements the Development Studies Program and guides students completing a joint major or joint advanced major in Development Studies and Anthropology into appropriate courses. It is also ideal for students who are most interested in Anthropology of Development for their Honours degree. Finally, this stream brings together various courses for students who want to study development, but are majoring in subjects such as political science, business, economics, women’s studies or sociology.
