This programme is an exciting chance to explore some of the increasingly prominent economics issues affecting 21st century political and current affairs. Economics is an intellectually challenging discipline that builds important skills and techniques in using maths and applying statistical data, as well as wider transferable skills, all of which will make you a highly sought-after graduate with a significant advantage in the employment market. The study of politics works on 2 fascinating levels. 1st, it helps you to understand and explain what governments do. 2nd, it teaches you a huge amount about human nature. As you progress through this degree you will learn about campaigns, elections, protest movements, policy issues and political ideals. You'll also explore different arguments, rival theories and alternative explanations, as well as building up the analytical skills that are so important in the jobs market.
