A diploma in International Development from Okanagan College will teach you a great deal about political deficiency, racial, gender and other forms of discrimination, environmental degradation, poverty, lack or financial and economic transparency and outright corruption. It will give you a distinctly multidisciplinary perspective on these issues and others facing international development efforts, and will teach you how to analyse these issues in a modern, global context.
This program has two distinct streams, each leading to a different specialty.
The International Development Governance stream will see you becoming familiar with the challenges that governance specialists face in this context. You’ll also have the opportunity to further specialise in Sustainable International Development, Environment and International Development or Women and International Development.
The International Development Management stream is much more commercially focused, and features Business as well as Arts content.
Note that all Arts content credits are transferrable into Baccalaureate level programs at Okanagan, though business credits must be approved individually.
