Political Economy

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

By taking an interdisciplinary approach, the field of political economy addresses economic systems, markets, and industry as well as the administrative strategy and planning designed to regulate them. Students may find this study rewarding as countries move toward a global economy but must also find ways to resolve governmental differences.

Students who complete a part of their degree in Asia are growing in numbers. Currently, the second and the third biggest economies are in Asia. Without limitation, students have described their time in Asia as the best experience of their lives. Today, three of the four most populated countries of the world are in Asia: China, India, and Indonesia.
