Course Description: This course introduces the varied concepts and theories of development through an intensely interactive and discussion-driven format. Each session combines lectures and discussion to ensure a thorough understanding of the readings. Considerable emphasis is thus placed on the student’s ability to, and interest in, participating in discussion and respectful debate. The main objective of the course is to familiarize students with the meaning and scope of development, the development debate and analyses of the major theories of development, as well as contemporary issues concerning rural development, foreign aid, structural adjustment, poverty reduction strategies, and the role of the state, market, and civil society, including NGOs, in development. At the end of the course, students are expected to be conversant with a wide array of concepts such as social, economic, and sustainable development, poverty reduction, and development planning, among others. In addition, students should be able to better appreciate the dynamics involved in development and critically argue, analyze, and write about development in both global and national contexts.
