Course summary

The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) programme comprises a significant piece of research which will enable you to contribute to the academic community through a large written thesis (typically up to 90,000 words). You can complete your PhD in 2 to 4 years (full-time) or up to 6 years (part-time).

Overview

This programme is centered on supporting research into current global political and economic transformations, along with their social and policy implications at global, national and a local level. It seeks to promote research that contributes to bring together the nationally-grounded assumptions and discourses on which much social science continues to be predicated with global perspectives seeking to transcend these assumptions.

We encourage applications from students who aim to analyse the diverse experiences and impacts of economic globalisation, examine the relationship between global governance and inequality, and contribute to a better understanding of how many of the key problems that confront humanity in the 21st century require new and inter-disciplinary academic approaches, innovative methods, policy agendas, creative thinking and transnationally comparative datasets.
