The minor in Global Political Economy (GPE) is an interdisciplinary program in the social sciences designed to help students explore all the dimensions and implications of globalization in contemporary international relations. The minor is administered by the International Relations Program and is open to all Syracuse University undergraduate students in good academic standing. International relations majors whose topic concentration is international political economy (IPE) are not eligible to take the Global Political Economy minor.


The GPE minor consists of six (6) courses, eighteen (18) credits. These include two required introductory-level courses, PSC 124 - International Relations  and GEO 273 - Geography of the World Economy: Capitalism, Inequality, Politics , plus 12 credits in courses numbered 300 or above, which must include one course in Economics, one in Political Science, and two approved social science GPE electives. For the four upper division courses, students may take a maximum of two political science and two economics courses. Advanced undergraduate courses (300-level or higher) designated in the International Political Economy (IPE) topic area of International Relations that are global (not national or regional) in scope may be accepted toward completion of the minor upon approval by the GPE Minor Coordinator in the International Relations Program. You may check the list of approved courses offered each semester at http://www.maxwell.syr.edu/IR_Global_Political_Economy/

To be eligible to declare the minor, students must receive a B or better in one of the required lower division courses.
