Master's programs

This popular combined programme provides a natural combination of two core social science disciplines. There are many potentially creative tensions between the two disciplines, which reflect the different modes of analysis traditionally used in economics and political science. The traditional links between economics and political science have been strengthened in recent years by the rapidly growing research programme into new political economy. Our joint programme exploits these links and tensions through a wide variety of optional honours courses. Economics 1; Introduction to Politics and International Relations; Political Thinkers; and one option course. Year 2 Economics 2; International Cooperation in Europe and Beyond; Statistical Methods for Economics; Comparative Politics in a Globalised World; and one option course. Year 3 Topics in Microeconomics; Essentials of Econometrics; either Applications of Econometrics or Topics in Macroeconomics; either Global Justice and Citizenship or Approaches to Politics and International Relations; one politics honours option and one option course from either economics or politics.
