Course summary

Explore the ethical implications of financial decisions and train your mind as you question the fundamental principles that underpin society.

Economic forces affect every aspect of our lives, from the price of coffee to our structures of our government. Study these pressures under the guidance of world-class researchers and analyse the philosophical implications of economic theory. Who bears the burden of financial stability? Can great wealth ever be ethical? Is it permissible to weigh the poverty of some against the greater happiness of the whole?

Assessment

Most of your assessments will be either unseen examination papers or essays, which will vary depending on the department running the module. Most Economics modules for example are assessed by exams, but in Philosophy there is more of a mixture of exams and essays.

Assessments occur throughout the three years of study, usually in the term immediately after the module has been taken. There are three assessment periods during the academic year: Week 1 of the Spring Term, Week 1 of the Summer Term and Weeks 5 to 8 of the Summer Term.

Careers and skills

The interdisciplinary nature of Economics and Philosophy provides transferable skills that are highly sought after by employers, with over 95% of our graduates entering further work or study within six months. With our diverse student body and opportunities for internships and study abroad, you'll be well prepared to enter the global marketplace.
