Course summary

The BA in Philosophy and Economics aims to develop your understanding of economic analysis and economic problems as they relate to a wider range of social and political issues, while cultivating your intellectual and critical skills.Each School involved in delivering the degree offers a challenging course of modules, supported by a friendly atmosphere and excellent staff-student relationships.There are two related aspects of the philosophy course at Cardiff that mark it out among Russell Group universities. One is that there is a strong emphasis on ethics, politics, and aesthetics among the modules on offer. The other is that our research and teaching is spread equally across both the ‘analytic’ and ‘Continental’ styles of Western philosophy, allowing students to develop a full understanding of both with the possibility of an informed choice to specialise in one approach or the other.The degree provides the training necessary for students who wish to study either discipline at postgraduate level and a valuable range of intellectual and transferable skills for students who wish to enter other professions.Distinctive featuresThe distinctive features of the course include:•a strong emphasis on ethics, politics, and aesthetics•equal attention to ‘analytic’ and ‘Continental’ styles of Western philosophy•the opportunity to study in two subject areas with different social science perspectives•the experience of learning within different teaching environments, interacting with students and staff across the University•the wide variety of modules and subject areas available to students within Economics and Philosophy.
