Why choose this course
At a time when economic and political contexts take centre stage in shaping our lives, and interact with each other at a fundamental level, our BSc Politics and Economics course will provide you with the tools and knowledge to better understand the different forms of power that shape the world around us.

What you will study
Our BSc Politics and Economics course will provide you with an in-depth understanding of core political and economic concepts, theories and methodologies. You’ll then be able to specialise in a wide variety of areas, from political economy and financial markets through to international organisations and international trade.

Your time will be split equally between modules in politics and economics, allowing you to draw links between the two in both the theoretical and the applied fields of study.

You’ll be provided with the knowledge necessary to tackle some of the most pressing questions that confront us today, from the role of markets in civic life to the existence of rationality in decision making.
