Months of entry
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.
Research Excellence Framework 2014 - our University demonstrated strength in five emerging areas of research which it entered into the assessment for the first time, including social work and social policy.
