Experts on global development
The study of global development is about understanding how countries and societies around the world change and develop over time. It explores the factors that influence a country's progress, such as its economy, politics, culture, and social conditions. Global development is a multidisciplinary field, drawing knowledge from subjects like economics, sociology, political science, and geography. WPI experts on global development can speak about their work to create sustainable and socially just approaches to development that take into account factors including the environment, affordable housing, and education. WPI offers academic programs including Science and Technology for Innovation in Global Development, WPI’s programs offer students the opportunity to participate in project-based learning which allows for global research that is tied to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
