The MSc Global Politics aims to provide you with knowledge of the political, economic, cultural and moral debates about how and to what extent the effects of globalisation can be governed. This course will provide the means for you to develop the analytical and conceptual skills necessary to understand and discuss: - The key international and transnational structures, organisations and institutions that have developed in the era following the Second World War - The range of the academic debates in the area of global governance - Policy developments and innovations in the fields of economics, security, and environment - The moral justification for different and sometimes competing regimes of global governance. You will also benefit from the wide range of academic resources within the School of Government and International Affairs, the Law School, the Department of Geography, and Durham University Business School, making the MSc Global Politics a truly unique interdisciplinary course.
MSc: UK 2.1 Bachelor degree, or equivalent. The degree should be in the field of social sciences, but we will actively consider significant relevant experience in lieu of this requirement. Two satisfactory academic references. In cases of applicants who have significant relevant experience, one work-related reference and one academic reference would be considered appropriate.
Core modules: Global Governance; Global Political Theory; Dissertation. Two SGIA options (may choose from DGSi optional modules) up to 60 credits. A 20 credit language module is allowed to be taken with all the programmes as long as it is agreed with the programme director.
All modules have written exercises for formative assessments. Upon getting feedback on these assignments, you can meet your lecturers to discuss marks before then eventually completing a summative assessment. Typically summative assessments are 3,000 word essays, but some modules may be assessed by examination. You can also meet your module coordinators during weekly contact hours or by making an appointment. When you are working on your dissertation during the later half of the year, you will meet your assigned supervisors for a minimum of 6 hours. You will also have access to academic advisors whenever there is a need.
