Master of Development Practice


One of the exciting opportunities that
we offer our students each year is a field trip to the Caribbean. The
Caribbean is our learning laboratory where we focus on international
development issues. Staying in Brownstown we saw a really good first-hand experience of how connected the food system is to life in Jamaica and how
dependent so many people are to various aspects of the system. Going to Jamaica and talking to the farmers which process the bananas we eat or
going to the different farmers who look at the different herbs and plants that
go into different types of types of medicine, we learned so much that we
could not have learned within the classroom. Going on the trip is really a
great way to prepare for an international placement and for further
work in the field as you progress in your career. if you are interested in learning by
doing and International Development I would strongly encourage you to come to the University of Waterloo you will have a class A experience here.
