The MA in International Political Economy (IPE) concentrates on the critical comprehension, understanding, and analysis of developments in international political economy, in terms of its theories, issues and conflicts. Students will be equipped with critical analytical insights into contemporary issues such as globalisation, trans-nationalisation, development, conflict and human rights. Competency will be developed in the critical theories of, and contemporary approaches to, international political economy.
On completing the programme students will have a deeper understanding of the historical evolution of different approaches to international political economy, and be able to apply these approaches to contemporary issues in international political economy. Students will apply the intellectual skills developed in the programme in the preparation and presentation of theoretical and/or applied analyses in the form of a dissertation.
