The EUNICE MOOC in Global Studies aims to serve as an introduction to this discipline for those who want to have a first contact with this innovative and emerging field. It covers topics such as economics and business, society and culture, health and sustainability, from a globalised point of view.One of the key elements of this MOOC is that it is taught by professors from 7 Universities, coming from 7 different countries. Therefore, the learning experience will be enriched by the multiculturalism offered by the diverse profiles of the teaching staff. Moreover, being an introductory course, it can be followed by students from different backgrounds and interests. In the context of today's globalized world, this course will help the students to understand the interrelationships created between actors at different levels (local, national, international), and how they can affect them and the people around them.
