Learning and teaching methods
We use a variety of teaching styles and assessment methods. The MSc Global Governance is taught face to face and online through interactive workshops and simulations. You will also engage in supervised research. The course also benefits from strong links with international organisations, government and business and therefore, there will be optional study visits and special lectures at European institutions, the U.S. Embassy and private sector organisations.
If you choose to study full-time the course length is approximately 12 months with a further three months should you undertake a work experience placement at the end of the course.
There is high demand for graduates with an in-depth understanding of the intertwined activities of states, businesses and nongovernmental organisations. Global governance has particular relevance to policy makers and following graduation, you will be well prepared to enter or progress further in careers in government, international organisations, the diplomatic service, nongovernmental organisations, policy work, and the voluntary sector.
You will be introduced to theories and concepts drawn from international relations, which will enable you to apply to the analysis of emerging global challenges. The supervised research project will also enable you to develop greater expertise in a specialist topic. The focus on applied analysis, real world case studies and exposure to internationally recognised business and policy professionals, will ensure that you gain practical skills that will allow you to make a direct positive contribution in your chosen profession.
