Course Descriptions

HS 204F — Education, Gender and Development

Meets for one-half semester and yields half-course credit.

Reviews the relationship between gender access to education and development indicators such as reduced fertility, improved health, and women's access to employment, income, and decision-making. Students look at the broader factors behind these links, and at issues that prevent education from playing the expected role in overcoming inequalities and building human and social capital in developing countries. Usually offered every year.
