Program description

Our MSc in Globalisation provides you with the tools for engaging in meaningful dialogues with important people from around the world.

Globalisation is widely regarded as one of the most important societal changes of our times, one that affects people living all around the world. Since the late 1980s, globalisation has become an important research field in the social sciences, as well as a major concern of policy-makers and citizens alike. Social scientists enter into meaningful dialogues about the benefits and drawbacks of globalisation with government officials, corporate executives, leaders from civil society and the general public.

Our Globalisation Programme should appeal to you especially if you want to deepen your understanding of the diverse types of societal changes being driven by globalisation. The MSc Globalisation programme reflects international research expertise of the Department of Sociology and the degree programme was the first of its kind in Scotland. After successfully completing the degree programme, you will understand advanced social scientific perspectives on the subject. You will also understand the cultural, social, political, and economic dimensions of globalisation, the relationship between local and global societal change, and gain skills that sustain lifelong learning and intellectual development. You will also learn how to undertake independent social scientific research.
