The MSGTD program at ASU addresses the global disparity in wealth and access to resources and basic needs, both between and within countries. In addition, the program seeks to help you better understand the role of technology in creating wealth in nations, as well as its distribution. Issues of culture, history, religion, and social organization are considered mitigating factors in this process.
As a student, you are encouraged to pursue research questions in the developed or the developing worlds, which enables you to engage in social science research on issues related to technology and human socioeconomic and political development. You will take courses in theory, research, policy and regional studies to prepare you for the capstone applied project.
Graduates of the program have been employed in a variety of fields, including the technology industry, the non-profit sector, and the government, including the State Department and the U.S. Agency for International Development. Students in this program have also served in the U.S. Peace Corps prior to and during their studies.
