At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We’re proud to be ‘University of the Year for Student Experience’ in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too.

At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both Economics and Politics.

Economics and politics are inherently linked and awareness of these subjects is vital for understanding the contemporary world. Studying economics allows
you to explore the factors which shape the behaviour of individuals, businesses and governments. Combining economics with politics allows you to assess how economic forces shape our political environment and how political decisions affect the performance of economies.
You’ll learn techniques for addressing real world problems and policy-related issues, and explore the behaviour and performance of households, businesses and governments. You will engage with big questions, such as globalisation, the impact of Brexit, inequality, development, human rights, and the influence of international organisations such as the UN, World Bank, and World Trade Organisation. In considering issues of social importance and policy relevance, and
examining real world phenomena, you’ll combine theoretical analysis with up-to-date knowledge about current issues. You’ll use professional software tools to analyse and interpret data and to confidently present complex analyses to a range of audiences.

An Economics and Politics degree from Keele will open up a range of opportunities in business and government. Graduates might take up careers as economists, perhaps in the City or with the prestigious Government Economic Service. They might work in commerce and industry, in education or in local government. With or without further study, you might go into banking, insurance, accounting, management consultancy, or the NHS, for example. You might work as an investment analyst, statistician or financial adviser. Many of our students go on to further postgraduate studies.
