Comments about BA International Relations & Economics - At the institution - Reading - Berkshire

  • Objectives
    The study of International Relations and Economics together is a natural and enriching combination that offers students a variety of concepts, approaches and methods for understanding the global world in which we live. In International Relations, while the main focus is on relations between states, particularly in the domain of conflict and post-conflict studies, students can also study in-depth aspects of political philosophy or comparative governmental and political systems. In Economics, students will develop advanced skills in issues covering the whole range of macro to micro economic processes.
  • Entry requirements
    There are different entry qualifications for each programme. Some programmes require you to have a certain amount of knowledge in a subject before you begin the degree programme – this is called a ‘subject requirement’. Other programmes do not have any specific subject requirements. All programmes will, however, expect you to have reached a certain standard in your education and will ask you to achieve certain grades in your examinations. Most programmes have a standard offer so that you know in advance what you are likely to need. Please note that even if you have the minimum entry qualifications, you are not necessarily guaranteed a place on the degree programme.
