It takes seriously the need to provide analytical tools for critically reflecting on our social and cultural futures from a larger perspective based in the humanities, and anchored in subjects such as History, Ethics, Philosophy, The study of Religion, Gender Studies, Theology and Minority studies. The programme taps into a set of topical global issues and brings to the surface relevant factors and dimensions that underlie the process of social exclusion; values, ideas, beliefs, trends, ideologies, practices in combination with the individual and social agency, capabilities and power. The skillset provided by this programme is useful both for students seeking a career in a range of organisations and for those who are aiming for a career in research. -
