Political Economy

Level: Postgraduate coursework

Political Economy introduces you to key economic debates in their social context. The approach is pluralist, drawing on competing theories. We study issues such as globalisation, finance, economic and social policy, development and trade, economic sustainability, labour and migration, regional economies and economic rights. This is economics without the algebra. Political Economy combines effectively with a range of other training and experience, including journalism, business, social and community work and public health. Our students reflect this diversity and bring their perspectives to the debates.

Courses at master's degree, graduate diploma and graduate certificate level include core studies in concepts in political economy, China in the world economy, human rights and international development, and global employment and migration.
