You will have the opportunity to study a wide range of specialist core and optional modules, which cover topical issues such as European political integration, international terrorism, and politics in the Middle East.In economics, you will study both applied and practical issues and focus on the relationship between economics and society. This course places less emphasis on mathematical and statistical content, and instead you will focus on the relevance of these techniques to applied problems. You will still learn necessary maths skills in your core modules with extensive support, should you need it. Optional modules span a number of topics, including business, policy, economic history and even the economics of climate change.Most of your contact time will be spent in seminar groups, allowing you to interact directly with staff and add your own voice to the discussion.You have the option of studying this degree over four years with a placement year.**Careers**Through this course you will develop strong analytical and research skills, as well as becoming experienced in delivering presentations and working as part of a group.
