How does the world work, and how can it be changed? This course explores issues of philosophy, politics and economics, and challenges you to devise creative solutions to local, national and global problems.
- Combine academic studies in philosophy, politics and economics with real-world problem solving.
- Apply academic theory in practical ways: you'll find creative ways to study, design projects, plan and innovate.
- Draw on the Humanities, Sciences and Social Sciences to explore how the world works from multiple perspectives.
Year one - Introductions and foundations: develop your understanding of the interconnected insights of economic, political and philosophical thinking, and follow a broad curriculum which allows you to ask questions, challenge your own assumptions, interrogate evidence, data and opinions. Year two - Practical, applied, relevant: this year combines the academic study of Politics, Philosophy and Economics with the acquisition of professional skills and the application of your knowledge and understanding to a defined problem or idea. Year three - Achievement, consolidation, creativity: your final project in the third year brings all this together. You’ll identify your own area of study, develop your proposal and put it into practice. This might be an extended piece of academic writing, but it might also be a pitch to a local employer, a community project or the creation of digital resources.
