Politics and Economics with a Placement Year

**About This Course** Discover how money and power interact. Few economic questions are untouched by political themes. So this degree combines a thorough grounding in economic analysis with the study of theory and practice of politics. Offered in conjunction with the School of Political, Social and International Studies, you'll gain high-level training in economics alongside detailed insight into political science. By mastering both political and economic inquiry you will be able to draw more wide reaching predictions and recommendations in answer to questions such as how to manage the trade-off between social welfare and levels of taxation. On this course you'll typically spend between nine and 12 months of your third year in a full-time placement, gaining invaluable working experience and employability skills in a relevant area of your choice. Although you will be expected to secure your own work placement, dedicated staff within the School and the Careers Service will support and assist you throughout the process of searching, applying for, and ultimately gaining a position. Support will also be provided whilst you're on placement and when you return to complete your studies in your fourth (final) year. Placements are just one aspect of work-based opportunities that are available to our students. Over the last few years several of our students have been able to secure internships during their studies at several top companies and organisations including EY, Government Economic Services, Handelsbanken, ONS, Willis Towers Watson and many others. **Overview** Whether you're 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.   **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
