This flexible course enables you to gain a thorough grounding in the core of economics as well as specialising in areas such as globalisation, migration, international development and urbanisation, all vitality important areas in today’s globalised economy. Modern economies are shaped by globalisation. The integration of trade, financial markets, international investment, and flows of migrant workers all affect how interdependent countries are. Economic events in one country can quickly spread to other economies around the world. This degree will equip you to understand and analyse these influences at work on an international scale. What determines why some regions are richer that others? How countries can develop through trade? These are increasingly important questions for policy makers to consider. By looking at these issues from the perspective of two different academic disciplines, you will gain a richer understanding of how these influences interact.
