MA Transnational Studies

The MA in Transnational Studies is taught by experts from across UCL and examines the
impact of transnational connections on our social, political, cultural
and economic life worlds.

With a focus on the movement of people, ideas and goods across national boundaries on a global scale, the programme is aimed at students with an academic background in humanities, social sciences, law or politics as well as professionals working in the
transnational sector (NGOs, international organisations, development etc).
