About


The joint-major Honours program in International Political Economy (IPE) is offered by the Department of Political Studies and is intended for students with an interest in the interconnected nature of the study of politics and economics at the international and global levels, which they wish to explore while pursuing a joint-major Honours option in another discipline or program.

The aftermath of Great Recession of 2008, the predominance of finance capital, transforming regional and international trade regimes, worsening economic inequality, a crisis of world order and social reproduction and more broadly the intensification of globalization have raised the prominence of the study of IPE in recent years among scholars and students from a wide variety of academic backgrounds.

IPE merges Political Studies with Economics and International Development Studies, as well as Anthropology, Business Administration, Canadian Studies, Environmental & Resource Science/Studies, Gender & Women’s Studies, Geography, History, Indigenous Studies, and Sociology.
