About

Why study BA International Politics, Economics and Law Honours at Middlesex University?

The International Politics, Economics and Law BA Honours degree provides you with the knowledge and skills related to three of the key issues affecting the lives of us all – politics, economics, and law. These key concepts and theories are studied in the context of evolving global policy processes and the contemporary international context, to ensure academic rigour and real life relevance.

Teaching is research informed, and our teaching staff are engaged in research on human rights, gender, and environmental issues. Many also use their research to influence on-going policy processes, such as development of United Nations international frameworks, which in turn informs their teaching.
