Course summary

**Overview**By combining the study of philosophy, politics and economics you can ask how things should be, why they are as they are, and how to change them for the better. On BA Philosophy, Politics and Economics with a Placement Year you’ll gain high-level training in economic science while exploring political and philosophical approaches to understanding human behaviour. In your third year you'll spend nine to 12 months on a full-time placement, gaining invaluable working experience and employability skills in a relevant area of your choice. This course combines the ideological with the practical, and equips you with excellent skills in research, communication and decision-making that you can use across any number of careers. **About This Course**This course will give you the chance to pursue a spectrum of interests. You'll learn to analyse a given economic, political or social problem using tools and concepts from economics, political science and philosophy, applying and combining these different perspectives to derive new insights. You'll learn about the core areas of economics, as well as studying philosophical topics such as scepticism, freedom and morality, and exploring social and political values such as equality and solidarity. Combining BA Philosophy, Politics and Economics with a placement year, you'll typically spend between nine and 12 months of your third year in a full-time placement, gaining invaluable working experience and employability skills in a relevant area of your choice. Although you'll be expected to secure your own work placement, dedicated staff within the School and the Careers Service will support and assist you throughout the process of searching, applying for, and ultimately gaining a position. Furthermore support will also be provided whilst you are on placement and when you return to complete your studies in your fourth (final) year. You’ll be based in the School of Economics, and you’ll be taught also in the School of Politics, Philosophy, Language and Communication Studies. The School of Economics is globally respected, especially for its pioneering and world-leading work in behavioural economics. Our active research areas also include macroeconomics, competition economics, environmental policy, conflict theory, finance, and labour market studies in education, family and welfare. You’ll be joining a vibrant and diverse community. Our student-led Economics Society is the perfect place to network and socialise with fellow students with shared interests. The Norwich Economic Papers, run by a Student Editorial Board, and the ECO Blog are outlets within which you can publish your work. Our within-school internships enable you to participate directly in frontier research. And our Staff Student Liaison Committee gives you a say in the future direction and every day running of the school. In the School of Politics, Philosophy, Language and Communication Studies you’ll enjoy a social and academic environment which is similarly lively, and which plays host each year to a rich array of talks by visiting politicians, practitioners and philosophers. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
