Economics and Politics - University of Huddersfield

**Why study Economics and Politics In today’s globalised world, economics and political systems have become increasingly interlinked. This course gives you the chance to study both disciplines together, understanding how the theory relates to what’s going on in the world today, and how it affects the social, political and economic problems that societies are facing.** On this course you’ll study modules from both Politics and Economics. The economics side of things will help you understand how resources are distributed and used from both a macroeconomic and microeconomic perspective. This will involve statistics and assessment tools used by today’s economists to analyse policy and international trends. The politics modules will include topics such as the study of political institutions, as well as the social and political issues that are affecting us nationally and globally. How will you learn - At Huddersfield, politics isn’t simply a theoretical discipline; it’s a subject where you’re encouraged to get active, take part and make a difference. - We’ll provide you with the opportunity to gain work experience by going on a placement in your second year, working in a political setting.
