Content

The challenge of how seven billion can live well on one planet can only be understood and tackled effectively by taking multiple perspectives and drawing on a range of disciplines.

The MSc Global Challenges is a multi-level online programme that offers distinct qualifications following successful completion of each of the three stages.

Each stage, a Postgraduate Certificate in it's own right, takes a multidisciplinary approach to global challenges from its own distinct perspective.

Studying all three stages gives you a comprehensive insight into the global challenges and develops and broadens your skills and knowledge to tackle them effectively. As you progress through the programme you will integrate your learning from each certificate you study, adding depth and richness to your experience.

The three PgCerts are: Global Development Challenges; Global Environment Challenges and Global Health Challenges.
