Department of Development and Sustainability
Academic Programs

Development and Sustainability program (DS) offers a generalist master’s and doctoral program based on an interdisciplinary approach to international sustainable development. The aim is to build upon shared expertise in the Department of Development and Sustainability and offer an academic program that has a broader scope than current academic offerings. A broader and less specialized program will be especially attractive to institutions looking for managers with a broad knowledge of development and sustainability related issues, and candidates who may not want to narrow their academic and research skills but rather get a broader understanding of development and sustainability issues in the region and beyond. The program also responds to the needs for capacity building regarding the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the Asian region and beyond since the concept of sustainability calls for expertise in both the environmental and social dimensions of long-term development.

In the current context of rapid social, economic, technological and environmental changes in Asia, it is imperative to understand the effects of change on various sub-groups: women, men, indigenous peoples, different classes, and other social groups. Gender and Development Studies (GDS) highlights both the need for specialized academic degree awarding studies in gender and development, and the integration of gender analysis and gender relation perspectives in AIT’s other fields of study. GDS offers graduate level courses and provides substantial input to student’s masters and PhD dissertation research. Short courses and workshops are also offered on gender planning and gender analysis in various development fields.

By functioning as an academic arm of community-based efforts for the advancement of women and sustainable development, GDS aims to work as a regional center of excellence in the field of gender, technology and development studies, and to integrate gender as a key intellectual perspective and ethical concern in AIT as well.
