Who is it for?

The MA in Global Political Economy caters specifically to students who wish to broaden their understanding of the complex contemporary global economic system and the socio-political relationships contained therein. Often students begin this course with no formal economics education and from a wide range of subject fields, including politics, law, business studies, media studies and the humanities, among others.

Objectives

The MA in Global Political Economy (GPE) at City, University of London enables students to critically evaluate complex relationships between markets, governments, transnational actors and networks in the context of a globalising world economy. The course is tailored to students who wish to acquire a range of analytical skills and specialist knowledge of the global economic system in the 21st century.

This advanced specialist MA gives you the tools to analyse the complex and changing roles of private markets, states, institutions and transnational forces and actors in the global capitalist system. It enables students to gain an advanced understanding of the means and processes through which actors, institutions and structures of the global political economy participate in economic and political life.

By the end of the course, you will have developed an in-depth understanding of the ways the global economy works and will have learned to address and analyse critical issues facing global business leaders as well as national and international policymakers.

The Master of Architecture (Global Practice) recognises the global and interdisciplinary nature of design practice in the built environment. Read more
The Master of Architecture (Global Practice) recognises the global and interdisciplinary nature of design practice in the built environment. It is designed for professionals with ambitions to lead in global design practice. In teaching, learning and assessment, the emphasis is on interdisciplinary teamwork and project-based design in the built environment.

There is scope for students to design the Masters Design Project to suit their aspirations in academic research or design practice in the built environment. The programme involves global design practices in collaboration with participants, and aims to produce employable leaders in Architecture and allied disciplines in a global context.

The programme is aimed at architects and allied built environment professionals who are ambitious to take a leading role in architectural practice. They might want to grow their own practice or move into one of the big global practices.

The programme is focused on:
-Communicating effectively in interdisciplinary global working environments
-Building a global network
-Managing big, complex practices and projects
-Designing sustainable buildings in a range of contexts from community self-builds to international airports.

The main aim of the programme is to give students opportunities to undertake design projects, collaborating with a cohort of students from around the world and the UK in an intensive, one year, full-time format.

The Master of Architecture (Global Practice) is designed to prepare graduates to enter these new, collaborative work environments by providing the opportunity to develop new cross-cultural skills, attitudes and competencies and providing learning that is transferable in multiple contexts.

The programme aims to expand and transform students’ perspectives, helping them research and apply sustainable design and construction methods and techniques for managing diverse projects and teams in the context of global architectural and engineering practice. The programme is designed to provide a flexible and responsive learning environment that aims to prepare and equip graduates for growing environmental and social challenges, respects the diversity of the students’ own values and beliefs and looks to foster an outlook that is interdisciplinary, intercultural, innovative and inclusive.

How You Study

The Master of Architecture (Global Practice) course is divided into three levels - the Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma, and the Master's Thesis. Each level is worth 60 CATS points of study and generally corresponds to a semester of full-time study.

The teaching and learning strategy is designed to offer a balanced programme of study with opportunities for theoretical investigation, project development and independent research fully integrated throughout the programme.

The approach to teaching and learning is based on evaluating the skills, knowledge and interests that students bring with them to the course and constructing a variety of learning experiences that respond to each student’s individual needs and requirements. Above all, the teaching team acknowledges and values the diverse backgrounds and experiences of students who come from all over the world. We aim to build on this diversity whilst encouraging students to expand their horizons and to develop advanced skills and knowledge in architecture.

Students are encouraged to adapt the programme of learning in the design studio to reflect their own interests, exploring design problems in projects that are negotiated with programme tutors.

How You Are Assessed

Students are assessed in a variety of ways; through verbal presentations, written submissions and through the exhibition of design project work and the development of a portfolio of individual and collaborative design project work.

The University of Lincoln's policy on assessment feedback aims to ensure that academics will return in-course assessments to you promptly – usually within 15 working days after the submission date.

The practical emphasis on exploring global contexts through design projects is designed to allow students to work at a range of scales from hands-on community building to strategic city planning. Underlying all our work is respect for socio-cultural diversity and interdisciplinary knowledge and a search for sustainability.

This programme provides professional links through case studies and design project and practice visits in collaboration with global design practices based in UK and practicing world-wide.

We are the first university in the United Kingdom to offer a fully globalised course developed in collaboration with key institutions in India, Australia and the United States. Read more
We are the first university in the United Kingdom to offer a fully globalised course developed in collaboration with key institutions in India, Australia and the United States. Our unique distance learning MSc course can be accessed worldwide and takes a global perspective of civilian and military veteran and family well-being.

See the website http://www.anglia.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/global-military-veteran-and-family-studies

Our postgraduate course has evolved in keeping with ongoing military strategy which considers culture as a tool of war, along with soft diplomacy and health engagement. Our course is delivered in close collaboration with key military educational institutions in the United States, Australia and India and delivered from a cross disciplinary perspective of social policy, military strategy, psychology, medicine, nursing, social work, leadership and education.

The curriculum is founded upon the concept of a ‘global veteran’ encompassing military and civilian personnel who have deployed to conflict zones, delivered humanitarian assistance, peacekeeping, peace-making and policing at both home and abroad. The course is aimed at both military and civilian personnel who are involved in the care and well-being of the ‘global veteran’ and those caught in the crossfire, such as refugees and government and non-government workers. We strongly encourage applications from international students currently or who would like to work in this field, as we appreciate that care of the ‘global veteran’ and their families is a worldwide phenomenon.

The first of its kind, our global curriculum equips students with the skills and theoretical knowledge needed to ensure the health and well-being of the ‘global veteran’ both across and within national borders. You will explore the biological, psychological and social impact of working in dangerous and hazardous conflict zones and in addition, will have portable leadership and management skills to respond to humanitarian crisis as and when needed.

Students will also have the opportunity to undertake short optional elective placements at key institutions in the United States and India and to take part in ongoing global educational research projects, as a means to broaden their research skills. The course is embedded in the Veterans and Families Institute and the curriculum and teaching team support the concept of education based research as a means in impact upon veteran care and well-being from a worldwide perspective.

Delivered online through our virtual classroom the teaching takes the form of interactive lectures and discussion forums, with regular one to one tutorials and is led by Dr Lyndsay Baines an expert in veteran care and a team of leading global academics and practitioners in the field.

Careers

On graduation at PG Cert level you will find you have new perceptions of the services you take responsibility for, allowing you to think differently about both your client group and your choice of helping strategies. You’ll gain increased ability to focus on the specialist experience of the client group and to adjust services where necessary.

When you complete the PG Diploma, you will also be able to focus on developing strategies that guide choices about services to make sure resources are used effectively. You'll be well-placed to advise senior managers and present arguments that persuade colleagues and sponsors to provide services for veteran clients that optimise the most effective outcomes. Offering this specialist resource will open doors to your career progression.

At Masters Level you will contribute to the extension of knowledge in the area of veteran mental health and undertake research that will have benefits for services and client outcomes. Career paths may be either towards service management or as a specialist practitioner or researcher.

Modules & assessment

Core modules, PG Certificate stage:
Military Life and Experience of the Global Veteran
Transition and Assimilation of the Global Veteran

Core modules, PG Diploma stage:
Global Veteran Mental Health, Social Care and Well-Being
Human Security, Health and Well Being of the Global Veteran

Core modules, MSc stage:
Research Methods
Masters Dissertation - Military Vet

Please note that you will need to complete all of the above core modules. This course does not have any optional modules. Modules are subject to change.

Assessment

The first two modules will be assessed through a construction and assimilation of patchwork texts (a series of separate pieces of work that are 'sewn' together at the end to link to the structure of the module). You’ll need to demonstrate an ability to write with a high level of critical analysis, to argue points from various perspectives and to demonstrate an ability to synthesise your ideas into practice. The Diploma level modules will be assessed through fine-graded essays and a presentation. The Masters level project will be assessed through the submission of a written Major Project.

Your faculty

The Faculty of Health, Social Care & Education is the largest provider of health, social care and education courses in the East of England, with over 6,000 students from more than 20 countries.

Brussels School of International Studies

The Brussels School of International Studies (BSIS) is a multidisciplinary postgraduate School of the University of Kent bringing together the disciplines of politics, international relations, law and economics to provide in-depth analysis of international problems such as conflict, security, development, migration and the political economy and legal basis of a changing world order.

We are a truly international School, our students are drawn from over 50 countries. The strong international composition of our staff and student body contributes significantly both to the academic as well as to the social experience at BSIS. The value-added of a location in Brussels is the opportunity to expose students of international issues to the working of major international organisations such as the EU and NATO and the many international and non-governmental organisations based in Brussels. Students have the added opportunity of undertaking an internship with one of these organisations.

Course structure

We are committed to offering flexible study options at the School and enable you to tailor your degree to meet your needs by offering start dates in September and January; full- and part-time study; split-site options, and allowing students to combine two fields of study leading to a degree that reflects both disciplines.

The MA in Political Strategy and Communication allows students to choose secondary areas of specialisation from the range of programmes offered at BSIS (http://www.kent.ac.uk/brussels/studying/index.html). Thus, a focused programme of study can be constructed by studying Political Strategy and Communication in the context of International Relations; International Conflict and Security; Human Rights Law, and other subject areas we cover.

This leads to the award of an MA degree in, for example, 'Political Strategy and Communication with Human Rights Law'.

Programme aims

The programme aims to:

- provide you with a research-active teaching environment which provides a good grounding in the study of social science in general, in political strategy, and in the communication of political positions in particular

- offer you a critical perspective of the interplay between international relations and European politics as they relate to the process of creating a strategy for dealing with political issues, and communicating effectively the issues and positions on the basis of that strategy, in order to influence outcomes at the European and national levels

- ensure that you acquire a solid understanding of methodologies for the study of social science in general, and in the application of those understandings to the study of political strategy in particular

- ensure that you acquire a solid understanding of major theoretical approaches to policymaking and policy analysis, the historical development of the contemporary European policy landscape, and the application of theoretical and historical knowledge to the analysis and understanding of contemporary issues and cases in the field, with particular emphasis on the manner in which policies, positions, perspectives, and attitudes are communicated

- ensure that you acquire the necessary skills for an advanced assessment of contemporary problems in European politics, society, and economy, and their solutions

- develop your general research skills and personal skills (transferable skills).

Research areas

Our research interests span a broad spectrum of the discipline, with particular strengths in the fields of conflict analysis and resolution, political theory and European politics. The strength of the School’s research culture is reflected in the numerous books and articles published and in the existence of its three core research groups: Conflict, Security and Human Rights; Comparative Politics; and Political and Social Thought. We also host four University-recognised research centres: the Conflict Analysis Research Centre (CARC), the Global Europe Centre (GEC), the Centre for Critical Thought (CCT), and the Centre for Federal Studies (CFS).

All members of staff can supervise theses leading to research degrees. We encourage potential research students to refer to our postgraduate research handbook (pdf) for detailed information (http://www.kent.ac.uk/politics/postgraduates/research-programmes/pgrhandbook.pdf).

In 2011, the University successfully applied for ESRC recognition as a provider of doctoral training in political science and international studies (and other areas of the social sciences) as part of a consortium. As a result, we are now part of the South East ESRC Doctoral Training Centre, making us one of the key training outlets in our subject in the UK.

Careers

The School of Politics and International Relations has a dedicated Employability, Placements and Internships Officer who works with students to develop work-based placements in a range of organisations. Centrally, the Careers and Employability Service can help you plan for your future by providing one-to-one advice at any stage of your postgraduate studies.

Many students at our Brussels centre who undertake internships are offered contracts in Brussels immediately after graduation. Others have joined their home country’s diplomatic service, entered international organisations, or have chosen to undertake a ‘stage’ at the European Commission, or another EU institution.

Our graduates have gone on to careers in academia, local and national government and public relations.

Kent has an excellent record for postgraduate employment: over 94% of our postgraduate students who graduated in 2013 found a job or further study opportunity within six months.
