GBLD521: Community Development in a Global Context
Examines community development from a global perspective as it is practiced in different settings in the world. This includes examining global issues and a spectrum of community-development models, ranging from structured external models to grassroots initiatives originating from within a community (e.g., community movements). Students critically analyze the applicability of various models to specific contexts in different geographic locations; as well as apply their evolving understanding of different community development approaches to real-life contexts. Using current global community challenges and real-world challenges in which they themselves are involved, students explore how different community development approaches can work in a complementary fashion to optimize results at the community level. Pre-requisites GBLD 501 and GBLD 505.
