Course content

Globalization and urbanization are two key social processes shaping the world in the 21st century. This programme provides a unique focus on the economic, social and political dimensions of globalization and the increasingly important role of cities in responding to and affecting global agendas.

Cities in globalization are widely recognized as focal points for the big societal challenges of delivering sustainable economic growth, fostering global citizenship and establishing secure and resilient societies.

This programme critically evaluates theories, processes and outcomes of globalization and globalized urbanization. This programme is uniquely positioned to capitalize on the highly acclaimed Globalization and World Cities (GaWC) Research Network which was established in the Department of Geography.
