PROGRAMME DESCRIPTION

The BA/BSc in Politics of the International Economy aims to provide students with a thorough understanding of political and economic events and processes in a global context. The degree has a number of unique characteristics. First, it provides compulsory training in economic principles and theories of globalisation and international trade to enable students to understand the conceptual and empirical basis of the international economy. Second, all students will also study the legacy of colonialism and have the option to pursue more advanced training in economics.

The degree will equip students to think critically and independently about the issues they encounter in their studies and to develop the range of skills that will support their intellectual, vocational and personal development. After a first year aimed at providing the foundations for the study of political economy, students will be able to choose from two different pathways through the final two years of the degree, depending on their interest. Students reading for the BA will focus on political analysis and processes, while retaining a core of economics in their courseload. BSc students will pursue a programme weighted more towards economic and quantitative analysis.
