In choosing to study Economics with International Politics, you will explore the close inter-relationship between two key aspects of modern society.

The study of economics will focus on the principles of economics and the study of choices and their implications made by individuals, companies and governments when faced with scarce resources. You will also learn about the hottest up-to-date topics in the field.

The study of International Politics is highly complementary to the study of economics because the international arena provides an important institutional and policy context within which economic decision-making and actions often take place. You'll explore the fundamental question of who gets what on a global scale, how they get it, and why. You will look at ideas of power and justice as well as conflict and co-operation. You will be able to choose from a range of different study topics including global economic governance and the political economy of the global system, and many others that engage with the key debates of the global age.
