Globalisation and international relations have transformed in the twenty first century, offering the potential for stronger human relationships with distant cultures connecting in an instant, but also the danger of heightened conflicts and tensions.  

Delve into the social, cultural and political trajectories that have unfolded in the digital age. With a focus on both diverse Indigenous and civilisational points of view, open your mind to the world’s cultures, beliefs and systems. Develop essential cultural competency skills and think critically about how the creative possibilities generated by globalisation can be fostered while the threats it poses are mitigated.

The study of perspectives on globalisation is multi-disciplinary and includes sociology, politics, history and Indigenous studies.
