During a period of profound political and economic upheaval, a degree in politics and economics will equip you with the skills necessary to lead and succeed in a changing world. Politics is about power. One of the main sources of power is wealth derived from the economy. Combining your politics degree with the study of economics is a very smart choice, and will give you a deeper understanding of both subjects. As well as exploring British and international political structures, our course offers a distinct focus on ‘political action’ across party politics, campaigns and community politics, all within the context of economics and economic theory. Throughout the course, we maintain a critical focus on how political ideas and policies have translated into ‘real, felt’ political action and outcomes ‘on the ground’, whilst developing a broader and more rounded appreciation of the theories, practices and preferences which shape policy on such things as government spending, taxation and welfare policy. Politics and economics graduates have an important range of analytical and organisational skills applicable to many graduate opportunities. Jobs directly related to this degree include Government and Civil Service roles, covering public affairs, consultancy and research. Jobs in the field of marketing, media, public relations, and local government are also popular. The political and economic landscape is changing. New relationships are being forged between the left and right, and between localism, nationalism and globalism. There has never been a more exciting time to study this degree.
