Please consult the Undergraduate Calendar for the International Development (INDEV) degree requirements.

The Practice Specialization includes a field placement on a development project in a challenged community overseas. For Research Specialization students, you are required to complete a thesis paper instead of a field placement. In addition to your required courses, you can choose electives over your 4 years of study. The electives can be used to customize your degree.

Depending on the year you started your degree, the course sequence and degree requirements will vary slightly. To ensure successful completion of the INDEV degree requirements, please see the UG Calendar for the year you started the INDEV program.  For fall 2022 1A students, please see the course sequence listed below:

Practice Specialization

Note: If there is a discrepancy between the Undergraduate Calendar and the program schedule, the Undergraduate Calendar will take precedence.  Please notify the INDEV program administrator.
