Program Information

Degrees Offered:

MSc International Political Economy / MSc International Political Economy (Research)

Format: Campus

Program Description:

These programmes are intended for graduates with a good first degree in politics, economics, history, international relations and other degrees with similar content. The MSc International Political Economy (Research) is designed as a preparation for research work if you are entering the field from another related discipline. The MSc International Political Economy is an advanced, academic study of the subject and would be suitable if you plan to progress to a career that might have an international focus. It is not necessary to decide which programme you prefer until you submit your option choices in the Michaelmas term, normally in mid-October, unless you intend to apply for ESRC funding, in which case you will need to have decided to study the research programme and state this on your application form. If you do not apply for, or do not get, ESRC funding, it may be possible, depending on your choice of options, to change programmes up to the end of the first term of the course. Applicants should note that these programmes focus on political economy and do not specialise in international economics. Although economic concepts are taken very seriously, the focus is firmly upon the political determinants and effects of economic outcomes. These programmes are intended for graduates with at least an upper second honours degree or equivalent in politics, economics, history, international relations and other degrees with similar content.
