The MSc Global Politics programme engages clearly with dominant issues of global politics. At programme level, it addresses more specifically the theme of global citizenship. The rationale, therefore, is to offer a programme that helps candidates from a variety of backgrounds (humanities undergraduates, early career professionals with sufficient prior qualifications) to develop structured, exploratory, in-depth, and applied knowledge of this vibrant field.
This Master’s programme can be completed in one year (full-time), or stretched over two years (part-time). International students who require a visa are only eligible to study this programme on a one-year, full-time basis.
