Course content

This programme provides the expertise and skills in global governance and diplomacy required to pursue a fruitful career within an international organisation and their member states, or a non-governmental organisation operating within global politics.

Throughout the programme you will gain a deeper understanding of the transnational nature of governance and diplomacy. You will analyse the governance regimes that seek to address global challenges, questioning why such regimes succeed or fail, along with the politics underpinning current diplomatic practice and the obstacles to change.

The practical focus of the programme will ensure you are well-equipped to succeed in this field, with advanced knowledge of lobbying, report writing, negotiating, and campaigning.
