Course content

This MSc is an opportunity to study international educational responses to global issues and benefit from Scotland’s position as one of the leading countries in the world in this field.

The programme has been designed in response to recent policy declarations by the General Teaching Council for Scotland (Revised Professional Standards) and the Scottish Government.

It seeks to understand and contribute to the ways schooling, community and higher education respond to issues such as climate change, resource depletion, inequality and well-being, and ecological and economic stability.

It explores the relationships between learning and social and environmental change in complex, global circumstances, through local places and educational contexts.
