Course summary

The BSc Politics with Business will allow you to develop a strong quantitative analytic toolkit, and to bring this perspective to study a wide variety of political phenomena, including source of power, democratic representation and distributional justice, the political underpinnings of economic development in countries of the Global South, to international phenomena such as migration, trade, conflict. You will also acquire the skills to manage organizations and gain an understanding in how business works in an increasingly complex world. Our BSc Politics with Business provides you with leading analytic and quantitative skills increasingly thought in a data-driven word. Drawing on these skills will allow you to make sense of motives and actions of a wide range of political actors, such as social movements, political parties, governments, and non-government organizations. At the same time, management training gives you the tools to translate insights into organisational practice. Areas that you can expect to explore include, but are not limited to: • Statistical methods of social data analysis.• Concepts in political science: state, laws, wars and political parties• International relations • Democratic systems and political power• Human Resource Management• OrganisationsYour education extends beyond the university campus. We support you in expanding your education through offering the opportunity to spend a year or a term studying abroad at one of our partner universities. The four-year version of our degree allows you to spend the third year abroad or employed on a placement abroad, while otherwise remaining identical to the three-year course.Studying abroad allows you to experience other cultures and languages, to broaden your degree socially and academically, and to demonstrate to employers that you are mature, adaptable, and organised.If you spend a full year abroad you'll only pay 15% of your usual tuition fee to Essex for that year. You won't pay any tuition fees to your host university
