Global Development major

 

Personally connect with professors who have expertise in addressing social, political and economic inequality and injustice – professors who will invest in you while you:

  • Explore theories of international development;
  • Learn to understand systems of oppression; and
  • Gain practical skills and tools to create change in your communities, organizations and the world.

Work one-on-one with faculty mentors who have practiced locally and abroad. Learn from global practitioners who visit EMU's world-renowned Center for Justice & Peacebuilding. And maybe even apply to EMU's accelerated BA-to-MA program in conflict transformation.
