You most definitely have to go to graduate school and/or get experience.

I've heard Waterloo has one, but I'm not sure how good it is:

They also have a section of possible careers here and Masters programs if you're interested:

Guelph - very large focus on environmental sustainability
McGill - very focused on the theoretical side - lots on economics and politics. Very based on the like policy side of development.

I go to Queen's and i'm majoring in Global Development Studies. Its an unique program since it's one of the few that truly focuses on development. If it was "based" on something, it'll probably be history (1950's onwards) and also sociology/cultural studies. Basically looks to study how the 3rd world came to be, and what role the global north has or should have to create a sustainable future. Lots on the political economy and the role of international institutions. Also, a lot of our faculty specializes in aboriginal studies, so that has kind of been built into our program as well. It's very development based, which you don't find at Guelph or McGill, which are from my perspective the other most popular development programs. The program is also really small - 50 majors, 50 medials and 20 minors.

I plan on going to grad school after my degree, but there are opportunities that only require a BA. I want to become a development coordinator overseas for an NGO, which only requires a BA. Eventually I want to transition into corporate social responsibility.
