This course provides an understanding of globalisation and development. It places special emphasis on the problem of poverty and its relation to global justice and global politics. You study the political, social and economic causes, consequences and discourses of poverty and development. You also critically analyse these important global currents.
As a student on this course you develop: advanced knowledge and understanding of areas such as globalisation, poverty and development, international relations theory, and international and regional studies themes; knowledge of methods in social science research and the techniques required to carry out advanced research; theoretical and practical research skills, including the synthesis of materials from a variety of primary and secondary sources.
You benefit from rigorous training in globalisation, poverty and development and international relations theory, and in theories and approaches to the study of politics. This helps you to develop the specialist knowledge and research skills from which to embark upon a career with a significant international dimension or pursue a postgraduate research degree in globalisation, development and poverty studies.
