MA Global Politics and Law, University of Sheffield

We're all interconnected now and this presents new challenges. How do we live together? Answering that question needs new kinds of research and new kinds of teaching, like this masters - the only programme of its kind in the UK.

Taught jointly with colleagues from Sheffield's highly respected School of Law, the course covers common intellectual themes around issues such as human rights and the implications of international law, justice and democracy..

We'll give you training in research methods. You'll use those skills to research and write a dissertation on a subject that you're passionate about.
