Deciding on a Course Advice Please (UK uni) watch

    • Thread Starter

    I'm not sure which course I should decide on. I'll have to write my personal statement sooner or later and start my application process, but I'm still kinda lost.

    I like politics, not political "theories" but real life events. I like to talk about political events and relate them to economics, philosophy, and history. In general, I like to discuss about what actually happened rather than what some philosopher said and theorized in the past.

    I've been looking into few courses. Please give me some advice on which course would be good.

    1.Political Economics
    2.International Relations
    3. Politics and International Relations
    4.History and International Relations
    5. Economics and International Relations

    I also looked into PPE, but I've decided not to go for PPE. Not only you have to take 4 years but also turns out you learn mostly about theories, as far as I know.

    It'd be also awesome if someone can explain to me what you study in "political economy" and "international relations" in detail and how "politics and economy" differ from "political economy" thank you
