The University of Essex is one of the UK's leading academic institutions, ranked ninth nationally for research excellence following the last Research Assessment Exercise (RAE).
Over the last three decades, political economy has been one of the fastest growing approaches in the social sciences. It is broadly understood as the analysis of policies and institutions based on a solid understanding of the motives of governments, voters, lobbies, corporations and so on.
Our MA Political Economy covers all aspects of modern political economy, including market failure, the political logic of policy choices, and the trade-off between different political goals. If you are interested in how institutions shape the behaviour of political actors and how political decisions influence markets and vice versa, then you will profit from our course. It is also a good choice if you wish to maintain the flexibility of pursuing a career at an international organisation, a government organisation, a private enterprise or as a political consultant.
Upper second class honours degree, or equivalent, in relevant subject area.
