Course summary

Course Details

Gain a comprehensive understanding of the impact of globalisation and of the challenges the process of deeper economic integration presents. You will analyse diverse issues such as the changing nature of international competition, trade, migration and global governance. You will expand your knowledge of modern political economy and explore global consumption as an engine of growth. You will debate the 2008 financial crisis, discussing how it began, the definition of crisis and how the world responded. You will gain an understanding of how international political economy differs from economics. As well as measuring economic growth, you will also understand its distribution of costs and benefits, together with its social, political and environmental impact. This is an opportunity for you to embrace and scrutinise aspects of politics, sociology, history, philosophy and geography in relation to economic globalisation.

Course Benefits

Our course is aimed at students who already work or have aspirations to pursue careers in campaigning organisations, internationally oriented Non-Governmental Organisations, international organisations and government departments, as well as graduates interested in further academic study. Like all our courses, our MA incorporates employability, personal effectiveness and the development of research skills throughout our modules. You will also benefit from our links with relevant stakeholders and employers, and will have access to the diverse and research active teaching team drawn from across our University.
