Course summary

Overview

This course combines an interdisciplinary approach to the study of economics and international relations. The recent coronavirus crisis has demonstrated how the world’s economy is formed of a delicate balance of interconnected countries and their structures, theories and policies – which can have such a profound impact on millions of lives around the world.

During your studies you will develop a strong understanding of macro and microeconomics, in order to understand the way economists' approach and analyse societal problems at the national level, how markets work, and the application of elasticity in the pricing decision of firms.

We build upon the future by learning from the past, so with us you will discover the historical evolution of international relations theory. From realist and liberal schools to the challenge of Marxist-influenced perspectives, you will explore how theories that draw on philosophies and ideologies shed new light on the discipline.

In your final year you will then have the opportunity to undertake independent study in an area of interest within economics or international relations.

Teaching and assessment

You will be taught through a combination of lectures, tutorials, seminars, group work and self-directed study. Assessment is through coursework (presentations, essays and reports) and usually an exam or test.

Graduate careers

We are now at a critical time in the current economic climate where the need for sound economic skills and competencies with international relations will be high for the foreseeable future.

A degree in Economics and International Relations is ideal preparation for a career in business, finance and the civil service.

Recent graduates have progressed on to roles at major companies such as PwC, IBM and TNT.
