    We're ranked 22nd in the world for Arts and Humanities in the 2020 QS World University Rankings by Subject.

    Learn to view economic questions in their social and political context, and from different perspectives through the Master of Political Economy. You will gain a deep understanding of issues such as power and inequality, globalisation and its impact on national economic policy settings, and the trade-offs between the free market and broader social concerns.

    The Master of Political Economy provides extensive knowledge of key trends underlying the global economy and its transformation. The Department of Political Economy is a leading centre for economic analysis and research, and this program attracts a diverse cohort of social scientists seeking a deeper knowledge of economic issues and perspectives from this multifaceted program.

    You can undertake elective units from other departments, combining political economy with economics, public policy or international relations. Enhance your existing qualifications in political economy, economics, business, finance or other social sciences.
