About Economics and International Relations at University of East Anglia (UEA)


This degree programme, MSc Economics and International Relations, provides a platform to understand international economics and politics from an interdisciplinary perspective. Students are able to choose an area of geographical specialisation for their studies and develop skills highly desired by employers, such as an ability to understand international institutions and geopolitics.


You will study compulsory modules in economic concepts and econometric methods, international relations theory and international political economy. You will also have the option to select modules offered within the Schools of Political, Social and International Studies and, of course, from within the School of Economics. Assessment will be carried out through combinations of coursework and exams and a dissertation topic of your choice, supervised individually by an academic.


The course is taught in collaboration with the School of Political, Social and International Studies, both of which have a strong tradition of interdisciplinary research and teaching. Teaching specifically in UEA's School of Economics is informed by cutting edge research and practice; members of academic staff advise the European Commission, the Office of Fair Trading and other institutions, and their day-to-day experience in the running of competition policy gives a practical angle to the academic rigour of their teaching.


The programme should appeal to those who wish to pursue a career in the areas of international business or international relations. This course provides training that places specialist areas in a wider economic context and shows how the insight from economics can improve workplace performance.
