Gain a wide range of skills on this exciting Joint Honours degree, which gives you in-depth understanding of economic issues in business, society and public life as well as asking important questions about how we see and understand the world.
You’ll explore economic theory and approaches through core modules, as well as learning how to think clearly and construct effective arguments. You’ll learn about logic, ethics, the mind and reality as well as macro- and microeconomics. However, you’ll then develop this knowledge through your choice from a wide range of optional modules, which allow you to specialise in topics that appeal to you.
Philosophy of politics, science, language, religion, ethics and the mind, and thinkers such as Hume and Nietzsche are among the topics you could study, alongside economic development, international trade, public enterprise or the economics of work and labour. It’s a great way to broaden your horizons and discover two different but connected disciplines.
Leeds has great facilities for students of philosophy and economics. The Brotherton Library holds a wide variety of manuscript, archive and early printed material in its Special Collections– valuable assets for your independent research. Our other library resources are also excellent, and the University Library offers a comprehensive training programme to help you make the most of them.
