Politics and Economics

Whether you are interested in business, politics or simply how the world ticks, economics is a wonderful discipline for understanding how individuals make choices, how those choices create markets, and how markets interact to create national and global economies. It also provides the essential understanding for how economic policies can be developed to improve social welfare. BSc Politics and Economics allows you to study both economics and politics in a combined approach, giving you a thorough and high-level training in economics alongside providing you with a detailed insight into political science. **Course Structure** Our three-year BSc Politics and Economics degree offers a collaborative approach between the School of Economics and the School of Political Social and International Studies. You’ll take a compulsory core of modules, and then have the freedom to direct your own learning across the two disciplines with a choice of complementary modules. **Year 1** In your first year you’ll discover macro and microeconomics through core economics modules. You will also gain an understanding of economic modelling and statistical techniques through the modules Introductory Mathematics for Economists and Introductory Statistics for Economists. Your study of politics will be founded in the module Introduction to Contemporary Politics – plus you’ll get to pick a further module from the School of Political, Social and International Studies. **Year 2** You’ll continue to strengthen your understanding of the macro and micro economy, alongside learning about the collection and analysis of data. In Introductory Econometrics you’ll build your statistical skills – and get the chance to apply them in a practical project in the module Econometrics Research Project. This module is also designed to enhance your employability.  Alongside your economics learning you’ll choose a selection of modules from the School of Political, Social and International Studies, to complement the compulsory module States, Institutions and Citizens. **Year 3** In your final year, you’ll choose modules from the School of Economics that allow you to further your study of economic theory and public policy. You’ll complement this with modules from a broad range of political disciplines – and have the option of taking a dissertation too. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
