The School of Archaeology and Anthropology contributes to the teaching of Development Studies across the ANU through an undergraduate program offering a Development Studies Major and Bachelor of Development Studies (Honours). The core courses are taught within the disciplines of political science, sociology and anthropology, but the program includes courses taught within the School of Resources, Environmental and Society, the College of Business and Economics, the College of Asia and the Pacific, and the Centre for Arabic and Islamic Studies. This program is convened from the School of Archaeology and Anthropology. An Honours program in Development Studies is also offered. 

The School also administers and teaches into the Master of Applied Anthropology & Participatory Development (MAAPD) program taught jointly with Crawford School aimed at providing an understanding of the principal ways in which critical social inquiry and participatory processes can be applied to the design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of development activities.
