MA Globalisation and Development

Format: Campus

Program Description:

Globalisation constitutes the most important challenge confronting nation-states (developed, developing and least-developed) in the twenty-first century. Issues including financial instability and contagion, poverty and famine, war and insecurity, the rise of new powers like China and India, climate change and environmental degradation, human trafficking and immigration can all in some way be linked to the global politics of economic integration.

This program will enable graduates to explore the precise nature of these links. Although the program is principally aimed at graduates who already have knowledge of and/or a background in politics, international relations or development studies, it is open to others who wish to transfer into this area from a related discipline, such as Economics, Human Geography, History or Area Studies.
