Politics with Economics is an excellent opportunity to pursue your interest in domestic and international politics, and to tackle some of the biggest questions in contemporary political life, while developing a deep and rich grasp of major debates that have shaped the discipline of economics.
Politics and Economics BA progresses from a foundation in the key concepts of political practice and theory to an in-depth understanding of more specialised subjects such as populism, the EU, US politics, political violence, gender, justice and British politics. At the same time, it will introduce you to the major debates and developments in the field of economics, including topics such as micro- and macro-economics, economic theory and finance.
The course is structured around a number of subject areas arranged into modules, each of which is worth a number of credits. It is intended that by your final year you will have successfully completed 360 credits to graduate, approximately two-thirds of which in Politics and one-third in Economics.
For a full list of areas studied, see the 'What You'll Study' section of the course page on our website.
During this course assessment may include essays, exams, quizzes, video presentations, group work, policy briefs, textual commentaries, source analysis, research papers and oral presentations.
