BA Economics and Politics
Do you want to …
- debate what democracy and freedom mean?
- investigate economic theory and explore microeconomic and macroeconomic concepts?
- examine the great ideological revolutions of modern times?
- understand the mathematical and statistical tools for economics and business?
If you do, then BA Economics and Politics could be the right course for you.
BA Economics and Politics will give you a firm grounding in the institutions and practices of modern political systems, and a critical understanding of the economic issues arising in business, public policy and society at large.
You will examine British politics and analyse international issues. You will explore the political systems of other countries and track the evolution of global politics from the rise of the modern state to the present day.
The course also allows you to develop a deep understanding of the economic factors that influence income, wealth and well-being. You will also learn how scarce resources come to be allocated, distributed and utilised today, and such factors may change in the future.
In year one, you explore key concepts and debates within politics and economics, including key statistical and mathematical tools.
In year two, you study microeconomics and begin to broaden your economic and political knowledge through choosing core political and economic modules.
In year three, you create your own programme, choosing economic and political modules that allow you to specialise in your chosen areas of interest.
