Course summary

This unique joint course, taught by globally leading departments of philosophy and economics, allows you to study foundational and philosophical questions alongside your core courses in economics. If you’re interested in an economics degree, but would like to take your thinking to a deeper philosophical level, then this is the degree for you.

Philosophy addresses challenging foundational questions in many fields, including ethics, politics and scientific methodology. It also involves training in rigorous argumentation, including formal logic and essay writing. Economics tackles a broad range of problems, from barriers to economic development to international financial crises. What caused the great economic crisis of 2008 and which policies was the right reaction? Why is there still a gender pay gap? Why, as economies grow richer, are people often not any happier?

Economics considers broad-ranging real world issues such as these. In this programme, you will take an open-minded and scientific approach to such issues, using formal modelling of economic relationships, and testing hypotheses against data. Our graduates have excellent job prospects. Recent graduates have gone on to work in banking and financial services, government, management consultancy, media and education, and have also proved very successful in gaining entry to graduate programmes.
