ISID is a interdisciplinary institute in the Faculty of Arts with over 40 members from various faculties. It also works with an international community of scholars, development groups, and the public. Interdisciplinary research sponsored by ISID revolves around four themes: democracy and democratization; economic development; states and state-building; and social pluralism and civil society. It organizes seminars and conferences on development issues related to these themes.
Graduate students can register in the Development Studies Option (DSO), a cross-disciplinary M.A. program in which six departments participate: Anthropology, Economics, Geography, History, Political Science, and Sociology. Further information about this option can be found in these departmental sections of this publication and on the ISID website at www.mcgill.ca/isid/studies/option.
Students will ONLY be considered for the Development Studies Option (DSO) once they have been accepted into a master's program in one of the six participating departments (Anthropology, Economics, Geography, History, Political Science, and Sociology) at McGill.
Students applying through a participating department must indicate in their application that they want to be considered for the DSO. Final approval on admission to the DSO will be made once the files of successful departmental applicants have been received at ISID.
The DSO is a cross-disciplinary program. Please see the Dates for Guaranteed Consideration for the master's program in one of the six participating departments (Anthropology, Economics, Geography, History, Political Science, or Sociology).
