Loading...

The MSc Global Affairs examines the politics, society, economics and history of the world’s non-western, regional and rising powers and their role within a changing world order.

Key benefits

  • The MSc Global Affairs is a unique programme that looks at the world from the perspective of non-western regions, and critically examines the connections between the local and the global.
  • You will develop an in-depth and multi-disciplinary understanding of the politics, society, economics and history of at least two of the following countries and/or world regions: Brazil, China, India, Russia, Africa and the Middle East.
  • You will gain hands-on experience of designing and executing an independent research project on a global subject – either a dissertation with research methods training, or capstone project alongside specialised policy-oriented micro-modules.
  • With a flexible curriculum, the programme allows you to develop the kinds of specialist regional knowledge (including the possibility of learning a language), research skills and awareness of yourself as a global citizen that are valued by employers, policymakers and scholars in a fast-changing world.
