|Description:||The International Development (INTD) program is designed for future professionals who are interested in creating innovative solutions to tackle development challenges around the world. The program will prepare you for jobs in Canadian and international non-governmental organizations (NGOs) as well as United Nations (UN) agencies. The INTD certificate may also serve as an entry to a master’s degree in a relevant field.
If you previously earned a college diploma or university degree, you may be eligible to benefit from the unique courses in the three-semester college program.
Through a human rights-based approach to development, you’ll examine the multiple dimensions of poverty, education for all, environmental protection, gender mainstreaming and corporate social responsibility. In the offering, you’ll also gain knowledge and skills related to financial management, results-based management as well as the participatory approach in project design, implementation and evaluation.
Opportunities will be available to connect with international development organizations in Canada and globally. During summer, you may be able to travel abroad to experience the dynamic of development in the field and to further develop your areas of interest. You’ll also participate in events in Canada to learn about the country’s unique role and practices in the larger international development context.
This course will be asynchronous online, meaning you can access and engage with the course material anytime, anywhere, each week.
