Course summary

The global economy is reshaping all aspects of society. This affects policy, the environment and social inequalities. Studying our Global Political Economy MA will give you innovative perspectives on these transformations and the power struggles underlying them.

Study in one of the largest departments of International Relations in Europe. You’ll explore social and political aspects of economic shifts, and look at innovative practices and policies that enable change. You’ll gain novel perspectives on:

  • neoliberalism and alternatives
  • financial crises, debt and austerity
  • rising powers and global governance
  • development and inequality
  • multinational corporations.

You’ll study at the centre of theoretical innovation on international politics. We host the world-renowned Centre for Global Political Economy, the Sussex Centre for Conflict and Security Research and the Centre for Advanced International Theory. You’ll learn from our multidisciplinary environment, interdisciplinary approach and, cutting-edge research. We have an international faculty and distinctive programme of events.


This MA is ideal for you if you wish to pursue a career in international organisations, development agencies or NGOs, or journalism. Or if you’d like to take up a role in the private sector that requires knowledge of the global political and economic system.

We also offer excellent background and training should you wish to pursue doctoral studies and/or an academic career. We are committed to helping to identify placements for our students.
