Undergraduate Degree: A new major/minor “International Political Economy” (IPE)

Tunisia - 1 September 2017

Trade topics: Other

TBS's International Political Economy (IPE) degree is designed for students who are interested in the global structures, institutions and processes that affect all states and economies. The minor is designed around the idea that many issues on the international front are impossible to fully understand without a strong background in both international economics and international politics. Students thus focus on both the traditional methods of analyzing aspects of political economy - such as formal modeling, comparative methods, and statistical techniques - along with innovative ways of examining the impact of various historical and contemporary political factors on domestic and global economies. This combination of study allows students to develop a comprehensive understanding of a wide variety of issues, including trade, distribution of natural resources, development policy, and legislation in countries ranging from the "Global North" to "Global South".
