GE 446 Transdisciplinary Senior Project on Development: Critical Perspectives and New Directions

This is a one-semester course offered to senior students in Departments of Economics, International Relations, and Political Science and Public Administration. It is designed to enhance students' transferable skills in learning beyond their disciplinary boundaries and applying theoretical material to real life issues. Students form teams and prepare a senior project working with supervisors from different fields. The chosen theme for GE 446 is "Development". We will approach the issue of development from a critical perspective that includes both the prospects and challenges of development. We will also discuss new possibilities in our understanding of development, from "sustainability" to "de-growth". Topics may include the relationship between development and other social phenomena such as environmental issues, gender policies, urbanization, nationalism, citizenship, democracy and social movements among others. Credit units: 6 ECTS Credit units: 8.5.
