Politics and economics go hand in hand, providing insight into the world around us through the investigation of political economy and the relationships between public policy and finance. You will become equipped with the necessary skills to research and analyse key concepts of both subject areas and gain an understanding of politics and economics independently as well as how these two areas inform each other.
