The interdisciplinary MA degree in Globalization Studies at McMaster
University’s Institute on Globalization and the Human Condition offers
students the opportunity to examine the complex political, social,
economic, cultural, discursive and theoretical developments related to
processes of globalization and how these come to bear upon our lives, our
communities, and the environment in which we live. Research areas include:
contemporary culture; diasporic, transnational and multicultural
communities; global governance; international trade and finance; and
social, environmental and labour issues. It offers the benefit of a
