EDGI 524 Measuring the World: Education and National Development 3.0 Credits

This course critically examines the role of education as a primary agent of the socio-economic, cultural and technological advancement of nations. In the first part of the course, we familiarize ourselves with development more broadly, and in doing so conceptualize various measures of development progress and review theoretical perspectives often utilized in this work. Next, we consider the linkages between education and national development through the exploration of two country case studies of national development. The course concludes by considering the ways in which investments in health, alternative measures of well-being and development cooperation both promote national development and shape the relationship between education and development.
