Bachelor of Arts in Development Studies

The BA Development Studies offered by the DSS is a multi-disciplinal social science course, combining
economics, political science and cultural studies. Its objective is to provide the students with the theories and
skills in the social, economic, political and cultural development of people. The program places emphasis on
the Philippine situation, though it has subjects on the problems of development of other countries, particularly
in the Third World.
The graduates of Development Studies easily find careers in the undertaking and supervision of socio-
economic projects both in the local and international scenes, in government institutions, in the foreign service,
non-government organizations and in the academe. The course also offers opportunities in business,
particularly in the fields of economic and financial analysis and managerial work. It could also serve as a
preparatory course for taking up law studies.
The Development Studies curriculum has a total of 146 units, consisting of 45 units of General Education
subjects, 36 units of required Development Studies subjects, 17 units in Economics, 9 units of electives (taken
from other Philippine development and community development subjects), 9 units of cognates and 30 units of
other required courses.
