Take A Course

The Global Issues Course is a seven week evening course which gives students an introduction to development issues in a critical, challenging, engaging and interactive way. This course is designed from a global justice perspective and provides a range of viewpoints on each of the key issues explored. Topics covered include an introduction to development, education, global health, trade and livelihoods, environmental sustainability and debt justice. The course will address each issue by looking at both symptoms and causes, as well as possible alternatives. The final session of the course will look at ‘what next?’ and support participants in finding a role for themselves to get involved and take action for positive change. 

Courses run for 7 weeks on the campuses listed below. The cost of the course is subsidised by Irish Aid and EuropeAid.
