Global Challenges


This is the Stage II core course for all Bachelor of Global Studies majors.

Its point of focus is for students to produce a research proposal for your research project that you will write under mentorship in GLOBAL 300.

The course combines lectures, practical exercises, and mentoring in research design and methodology.


Global 200 introduces students to theories, methods and challenges of Global Studies research. Students will engage with research design and methods in order to work in teams and independently to construct research proposals relevant to their Global Studies majors and/or conjoints. The primary objective of this course is to instruct students on how to write an academic research proposal on an issue deriving from their major.

Global 100, Global 200 and Global 300 are compulsory for all Bachelor of Global Studies majors. These courses are interrelated.

Global 100 is an introduction to global studies. Global 200 begins with a reengagement with the reflective essays written in Global 100. Through further personal reflection, students will begin to consider how they may embark upon Global Studies research. Academic lectures will introduce students to research methods and practices relevant to their Global Studies degrees. Students will consider the role of theory in their research and discover appropriate methods to pursue a project. Finally, students will work independently to construct a research proposal that draws on their major streams, area foci, and language interests that they will then execute in Global 300.

Global 100 is a requirement for Global 200 (to be taken in the students’ penultimate year); Global 200 is a requirement for Global 300 (to be taken in the students’ final year of their degree/conjoint).
