Development Practice Department

Achieving a just and sustainable planet demands a holistic policy and attention to the lived realities of communities around the world. To meet this challenge, Regis offers an integrated and collaborative development education for aspiring and current development practitioners. 

Development Practice prepares you to collaborate effectively with a variety of development actors from an integrated, inter-sectoral and global perspective. With this education, you will be able to facilitate holistic development solutions, ranging well beyond the silo of a single discipline. With an eye to social justice, you’ll navigate economic, political and cultural complexity for lasting development impact. Moreover, your degree will set you on a path of lifelong learning through a discipline of critical reflection.

Our programs are premised on the understanding that tackling development challenges requires many types of knowledge and multiple points of view, interacting within an interdisciplinary approach. Development Practice courses draw on a range of disciplines, including health, engineering, climate, ecology, economics, communications, mapping, metrics, culture, gender, finance, management and governance to explore a common theme. Our global classroom brings development theory into dialogue with students’ own experiences, resulting ultimately in more creative and robust real-world practice for our graduates.
