Course summary

Why do some people have more wealth and income than others? What is the relationship between climate change and the global economy? Why do gender pay gaps still exist? What is the role of colonial history in the formation of the global economy?Our exciting new BA Global Political Economy will allow you to explore all of these questions and more. You will learn about how power and wealth are distributed across the global economy. You will find out about how institutions of global governance work and you will investigate the links between environmental harm and global capitalism.Taught by a range of leading experts with knowledge of different political scales and geographical areas - from the International Monetary Fund to indigenous resistance movements, and from Europe to Southeast Asia - this programme will guide you through contemporary themes such as global finance, feminist political economy, racial capitalism, development and justice, global governance and trade.The BA Global Political Economy will equip you with a comprehensive knowledge of how power works in the global economy and prepare you for careers in a range of policy and non-governmental roles.**HIGHLIGHTS**- Our Department of Politics is a world-renowned centre of original research. In the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF), Politics at Birkbeck was ranked 17th in the UK.- The Department organises a lively programme of seminars and conferences and is home to affiliated research centres, such as the Birkbeck Centre for British Political Life, which run seminars, conferences and other events where some of the world's best scholars present their latest research.- Our academic staff are international authorities in their respective fields, publishing and delivering stimulating teaching in a wide range of political topics including civil society and the state, public policy, development, gender, international security and terrorism, and social and political theory, among others.- Our location in central London puts us at the heart of the UK’s political life and at the centre of academic London. You can walk down to Parliament and Whitehall, while Bloomsbury contains some of the world’s most famous libraries and centres of research. Our departmental building was once a key location for members of the Bloomsbury Group, so you could be studying in rooms that have hosted distinguished visitors, including T. S. Eliot, George Bernard Shaw and Maynard Keynes.- You can take advantage of the rich research collections nearby, including Senate House Library, which is right next door to Birkbeck, the British Library, which is five minutes’ walk away, and the British Library of Political and Economic Science at the London School of Economics, which is walkable from Birkbeck. Birkbeck Library has a large politics collection, including the major specialist journals, and provides you with access to an extensive range of online materials.
