All students must meet the University Requirements.

All students must meet the College Requirements.

Building on an applied economics foundation, the Community and International Development curriculum offers students the academic and professional experience enabling them to address community development locally and globally. Students in Community and International Development have opportunities to analyze and learn from development issues in Vermont, New England, and around the world; students learn while engaging in real-world problem solving. Over the past decade, students and faculty members within CDAE have also nurtured relationships with communities in Belize, Peru, Honduras, and St. Lucia. CID students partner with organizations in these experiences to address the development issues facing local communities through carefully designed service-learning courses and faculty-led trips at home and abroad.
