With Athabasca University’s Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies - Global Change, you will learn to think holistically, critically and reflectively. You will find the connections and points of overlap between specialized and generalized knowledge. You will also learn problem-solving skills and policy-making strategies.
Global Change explores claims and realities of economic and cultural globalization; the role of emerging technologies in global change; the effects of neo-liberal globalism on the nation state, local spaces, and international governance; the unequal impacts of global change on women, indigenous peoples, the developing countries, and local and global ecosystems; as well as examining resistance and accommodation to global forces.Your program will finish with a final integrated project or capstone paper that will exercise and explore your newly acquired skills and knowledge.
You can choose to complete this project in a grouped study capstone course, or through an individual study project that will allow you to:
- explore a question or issue that’s important to you
- relate your research to a work or life situation
- address a community problem
