The Political Economy (Research Route) programme at The University of Manchester is housed in the Centre for the Study of Political Economy, which brings together the world-class research strengths in the field of political economy at the University. The course is taught by members from across the Faculty of Humanities in the School of Social Sciences, the School of Environment and Development, and the Alliance Manchester Business School.
Each student will pursue their particular interests in political economy through one of four pathways:
- Theoretical Political Economy;
- Political Economy of Society, Space and Environment;
- Political Economy of Finance, Business and Work;
- Political Economy of Development.
A number of our recent graduates have gone on to undertake a PhD in political economy. Others have gone into careers that require advanced research skills in areas such as academia, the civil service and the public, private and voluntary sectors.
As a School of Social Sciences postgraduate at Manchester, you will have access to a wide range of careers support tailored to your career or further study.
