The master’s programme in Global Studies is organised in a modular way. Compulsory modules are “Global Studies”, “Practice” and “Master’s Module”. Elective subjects to be chosen from a list include “law and politics”, “economics”, “history”, “environment, climate and technology” and “culture, religion, society and gender”; students have to choose two of them. Moreover, students have to study elective subjects that can be chosen freely. The master’s module consists of a master’s thesis, a master’s seminar and a master’s examination. A work placement outside the university is a compulsory part of the programme and must be documented accordingly. Students can do it in Austria or abroad, preferably in institutions authorised and recognised by the government, at NGOs working in relevant fields or at international organisations.
