As an academic field, governance involves the understanding of the framework of laws, powers and language of a society, which are normally handled by a government, market or network. In an increasingly globalised world, it is important to continue the development of governance policies and activities. As a student of governance, your knowledge and understanding will become integral to the evolution and growth of the systems of the future.
A postgraduate degree in governance will allow you to expand on the knowledge and skills gained at undergraduate level. Modules you study could include peace building, digital diplomacy, international negotiations, climate change, aid and poverty, and governance of conflict and violence.
