Global Policy is delighted to announce a new MSc in Global Politics at Durham University, convened by the journal's General Editor, David Held. For more information please see the video or browse an interactive brochure here.
We live in an increasingly globalized world. The fate and fortunes of countries are ever more enmeshed. Nuclear proliferation, terrorism, failed states, global poverty and inequality, financial market instability, biodiversity losses, and climate change – are among the global challenges we face and which demand global cooperation if they are to be to adequately resolved. The MSc Global Politics provides students with the tools to understand and critically assess these challenges and the forms of cooperation required to address them. The programme’s core modules concentrate on the institutional drivers of global politics by paying particular attention to international organizations and global governance institutions. They also offer an incisive overview of the main theoretical and applied moral debates concerning the ethics of globalization. Students in the MSc Global Politics will benefit from a vast choice of elective modules within Durham’s School of Government and International Affairs, the Law School, the Department of Geography, and the Durham University Business School. The generous choice of electives guarantees the possibility to tailor study paths and to enhance career opportunities in fields such as international and non-governmental organisations, management, public service, consultancy, media and international business.
