About

The Master of Arts in International Political Economy from Claremont Graduate University (CGU) trains students to analyze increasingly complex global interactions and to address large-scale political and economic uncertainties.

Overview

Assessing globalization’s effects within the interconnected realms of politics, economics, and policy requires a new set of specialized educational tools. The Master of Arts in International Political Economy from Claremont Graduate University (CGU) emphasizes deep theoretical understanding in international politics and economics, combined with a strong set of methodological skills that prepare you for the challenges of competition in market economies around the globe. 

You’ll develop basic skills in microeconomics and macroeconomics while mastering the major conceptual approaches to world politics and international political economy. Students focusing on international economics usually emphasize formal models and econometrics in their methodological training, while those primarily interested in politics emphasize decision theory and statistics. All students are encouraged to develop the sophisticated computer skills most useful in applied situations.

  • International Studies programming emphasizes rigorous training in cutting-edge technical and analytical skills, close engagement with theoretical and conceptual framework, and mastery of applications and policy issues in the real world.
