Learning Outcomes

It is expected that students will be able to think critically about the comparatively recent impact of the global movement of people and products: this would include being able to identify what the personal, social and economic strengths and weaknesses might be. Students shall also be able to discuss the advantages and disadvantages surrounding the tensions of living locally in a global world.
