Course summary

**Overview**Discover how money and power interact. Few economic questions are untouched by political themes, so this degree combines a thorough grounding in economic analysis with the study of theory and practice of politics. Taught jointly by the School of Economics and the School of Politics, Philosophy, Language and Communication Studies, you'll gain high-level training in economics alongside detailed insight into political science. By mastering the tools of both political and economic inquiry, you’ll be able to make wider-reaching predictions and more confident real-world recommendations. You’ll learn to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses both of markets and of governments. And you’ll leave UEA in an excellent position to pursue a range of careers, including in business, consulting, banking, politics, insurance, and the Civil Service.In your third year, you'll spend a year abroad at one of our many partner universities across the world. This is your chance to study your degree while immersed in a completely different culture – giving you the academic and personal experience of a lifetime.**About This Course**This course allows you to study both economics and politics in a combined approach, giving you a thorough and high-level training in economics while providing you with a detailed insight into political science.You'll study microeconomics, macroeconomics, economic modelling and statistics, as well as choosing from a broad range of other economics modules such as in behavioural economics, history of economic thought, the European economy, or political economy. At the same time, you’ll study contemporary politics, you may choose to write a dissertation, and you’ll certainly develop your own specialized interests from a very wide range of other modules in political, social and international studies.You’ll be based in the School of Economics, and you’ll also be taught 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 large number of talks by visiting politicians, practitioners, translators and philosophers.The time you’ll spend studying abroad is a fantastic chance to show future employers you have what it takes to succeed in an international setting, while gaining insights into the economic issues of another country.**Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
