On completion of this course you will have a deepened, interdisciplinary understanding of social science discourses and methods for analysing global processes of change, both generally and in specified policy areas.

You will also be knowledgeable on key contributions to thinking about social, economic and political aspects of the planet as an interdependent social system, and will have an understanding of how global and national policy processes interact.
