Course content

The MA in Geopolitics & the Global Economy equips students with an in-depth understanding of international relations, war and conflict resolution as well as national, local and regional economic development, global economic processes, global political events and the knowledge economy.

The course includes fieldwork in an overseas location such as Berlin, Madrid, or Reykjavik. Students acquire a solid grounding in the key knowledge and skills required by a geographer specialising in political or economic geography.
