MCISNew in 2008,The Dynamics of Global Change (DGC) is a multi-disciplinary doctoral program at the new Munk School of Global Affairs at the University of Toronto that explores the frontiers of global change across a wide range of issues. In a rapidly evolving, complex, and loosely structured global system, it is essential to understand the sources, structure and pace – in short, the
dynamics – of change. From their home departments, students may take up questions from their own disciplines, then explore them through the kaleidoscopic perspective created by multi-disciplinary collaboration.

**Please note the DGC program will no longer be accepting applications. The program is set to close next year.
