Development Studies

Internship in Development Studies
Deepen your understanding of development and social change through an in-depth practical learning experience.

Welcome to Development Studies at StFX, a program for those wishing to understand how various ideas about development influence socio-economic well-being and environmental sustainability and how to engage with these issues locally and internationally.

The program is designed to give students flexibility and to use expertise found throughout the university campus. The designated courses that complement and supplement the development studies core courses come from a variety of departments and programs in the Faculty of Arts, the Faculty of Science, and the Faculty of Business. As a Development Studies student, you’ll receive instruction from StFX faculty as well as development professionals teaching at the Coady Institute.

You’ll also have the opportunity for real-world experience through service learning placements in the local community. You could undertake a 3 to 4-month internship in Canada or elsewhere in the world. This combination of academic courses and hands-on experience provides you with the means to make your own contribution to local and international efforts to solve development problems, reduce inequalities, and change our world for the better.
