COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
SS487 INT'L POLITICAL ECONOMY 2020 2 Social Sciences 3.0 (BS=0.0, ET=0.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
SS487 serves as an introduction to the complex and fascinating fundamental relationships between politics, economics, and society at the international and domestic levels. How do political institutions, actors, and policies shape international economic phenomena? And how do these economic phenomena influence political forces in turn? Though international political economy falls within the broader subfield of international relations, we will soon discover that domestic politics and economics cannot be separated from international political economy. Thus, students will explore the mechanisms that link politics and economics across a variety of issues that are central to the field of IPE, including the politics and economics of trade, economic development, international monetary affairs, and emerging challenges in the global economy.
