About

An MSc in Global Futures: Justice, Development and Sustainability at Royal Holloway, University of London equips students with the knowledge and skills needed to tackle these era-defining issues, learning from expert academics with experience in Latin America, the Caribbean, South, East and South-East Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa and the polar regions.

Overview

Interest in what the future holds for sustainable development and global justice has never been so intense: the UN climate change summits, the Sustainable Development Goals and the World Social Forum are just some of the arenas seeking to lead the way on future environmental and development agendas globally. 

With this Global Futures Justice, Development and Sustainability course at Royal Holloway University of London you’ll join a vibrant research community and contribute to our renowned research culture with your own independent dissertation project. In particular, you will work with the leading researchers based in our Department of Geography’s Geopolitics, Development, Security and Justice (GDSJ) research group, which currently consists of over 20 research-active staff and 35 PhD students committed to conducting collaborative research which seeks to understand and contribute to addressing problems of social inequality, environmental destruction and injustice.

Career opportunities:

Graduates of this course will possess in-depth social scientific research skills and critical knowledge of contemporary geographic issues. Also, there is the opportunity to develop important public engagement skills, as well as to undertake placements and volunteer work in external institutions. The department has excellent links with a range of national and international charities, business and NGOs. These are actively used during the teaching of the course (via external speakers and field visits), and so students gain first hand experience and invaluable networks with this broad range of specialist institutions.
