Module overview

Global Society is a content-based interdisciplinary module which introduces you to contemporary world issues. You will explore a wide range of concepts, trends and problems which impact upon global society today including, but not limited to, global economics, the role of international organisations, the effects of globalisation, international aid, health, education and human rights.

You will be encouraged to consider your own country in relation to others and their chosen academic disciplines in the context of these themes. The module will encourage the students to think of yourself as a ‘global citizen’ who is preparing to study at an outward-looking university with an international focus.
