Course Information

In Economics, you will explore the microeconomics of business and society, macroeconomics of the world economy and economic problems in political, social and historical contexts, with a strong emphasis on applied learning. You will thrive in the dynamic, international environment of our Business School of 45 nationalities and be taught by experts including leading petroleum economist and government adviser Professor Alex Kemp and our health economists whose work influences Scottish and UK policy decisions on public health.

In International Relations, you will look closely at organisations, how states interact, the many contributors to global wealth and poverty and why inequalities persist. You will tackle regional and international tensions, nationalism, concepts of democracy – and the ever-present concerns of conflict and peace. You will be taught by internationally renowned academics with strong track records in publishing international papers and articles and who appear regularly in the media, analysing and explaining national, European and world events from the viewpoint of their own area of expertise and research.
