University Majors

University of California, Davis
Sociology A.B. (Comparative Studies and World Development)

The Comparative Studies and World Development emphasis offers a sociological approach to the development of advanced industrial and Third World societies. It seeks to understand contemporary lessons that may be drawn from the rise of Western Europe, to obtain a clearer sense of comparisons between the Western and Asian experience, and to understand the relevance of those lessons for presently developing countries. Particular attention focuses on the relationship between today`s developing countries and the more advanced nations of the international system. This emphasis is designed for students with historical and international interests. It will prepare students for graduate work in sociology and history, and for careers with international agencies. The distinguishing feature of this emphasis is its focus on the social bases of change in economic, political, and cultural aspects of development.
