About

The Global Political Economy programme offered by the University of Bristol is one of five interdisciplinary pathways that are delivered as part of the South West Doctoral Training Partnership.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

The Global Political Economy  programme offered by the University of Bristol  explores the dynamics of global transformation and policy implications, as well as their interrelations with national and regional institutional and social responses to the changing global political and economic order.

The MRes encourages you to analyse the diverse experiences and impact of economic globalisation and examine relationships between global governance and inequality. It will also help you understand that to analyse and resolve many of the key problems confronting humanity in the 21st century will require new and interdisciplinary academic approaches, innovative methods and policy agendas, creative thinking and transnationally comparative data sets.

Careers

The MRes in Global Political Economy offers useful preparation for a number of careers. Foremost, the MRes is the academic basis and preparation for students choosing the 1+3 programme (the first year is the MRes and the +3 the PhD).

The MRes emphasises ESRC-accredited research methods training, the ability to plan, research and write a sophisticated dissertation, and the ability to think in broad theoretical and interdisciplinary terms about challenging issues. These provide an ideal introduction to academic research and to working for NGOs.

It will be of interest to anyone pursuing a career path in politics, economics, geography, sociology, law, history, international relations, policy studies, development studies or area studies.
