    I'm really intrested in history, politics and economics, I'm thinking of taking political economy at Kings but I'm not exactly sure what it's about so if anyone does it, could you tell me what the course is exactly about? Also what kind of jobs could I go into with this degree? Thank you

    Political economy is the study of production and trade and their links with custom, government and law.

    If you get a 2 1 you could get a place on any graduate scheme including civil service

    basically it is the study of the relations between political institutions and the economy (local or international) - by "political institutions", these include both states and international bodies and international treaties
