This course explores how processes of globalisation and internationalisation affect people's lives across the world. You will examine the processes in the global South as well as the global North and will develop your knowledge of perspectives on social movements, gender, ethnic and class divisions and analysis. This will be supported by a thorough grounding in social science research methods and ways of interpreting data and change.
There are no formal placements offered, but dissertations can relate to relevant work experience, volunteering or internships.
About the Course
Throughout the course you will explore sociological debates and the impacts of large scale processes in the economy, society and politics as well as social divisions, inequality, intersectionality and globalisation. There will also be an opportunity to explore how identities and divisions are created through media culture and consumption and how these processes combine and intersect in practice. The course culminates in a dissertation which will take the form of self-directed research (although undertaken with supervision) related to your own area of interest in international issues.
You will be assessed through a series of focused essays, a portfolio and research proposal and a self-directed, research-based dissertation.
