Global processes have transformed the requirements of work and the labour market, as well as cultural and political landscapes, requiring new ways of approaching education and training.
The Master of Global Studies in Education will explore the complex ways in which the world is becoming interconnected and interdependent and the impact of this on education settings, pedagogy, curriculum and assessment. It highlights the imperatives for responding to the changing external environment with regard to education policy and governance.
The course is only offered as part-time study and can be completed over two years.
The course covers contemporary issues in globalisation, policy and leadership, identity, culture and citizenship, and youth participation in a digital age.
