On completion of this Global Political Economy  course you will have a deepened, interdisciplinary understanding of social science discourses and methods for analysing global processes of change, both generally and in specified policy areas.

You will also be knowledgeable on key contributions to thinking about social, economic and political aspects of the planet as an interdependent social system, and will have an understanding of how global and national policy processes interact.

The course at University of Bath  aims to equip you for a career as a professional researcher in an academic or non-academic environment by developing your core research skills. You'll be encouraged to review and critically evaluate approaches to research and their application, and to identify and investigate your own original research questions.
