Course summary

Politics and economics are intimately interlinked, and it has never been more important to understand these two crucial disciplines together. Our BSc Politics and Economics provides a thorough grounding in both politics and economics, with a range of optional modules allowing you to select specialist areas to suit your interests. The programme will help you gain a deep understanding of the foundations of both subjects, through study of political systems, international relations, democratic politics, political ideas, macro- and microeconomics, statistics and mathematics for economics. Develop your own interests through optional modules, such as those in international trade and policy, development economics, the politics of the EU, and Chinese politics.Our BSc degree is designed to develop skills in analytical and critical thinking, as well as highly valued independent research skills. Graduates from this BSc are well placed to pursue careers in national and international political and economic institutions, the civil service, finance and business, and think tanks and advocacy organisations.
