Economics and Politics with a Year in Industry

This four-year joint honours degree provides a thorough grounding in core political and economic concepts. There is a strong relationship between economics and politics and studying the two subjects together deepens your understanding of both. This programme also has the option to take a year in industry between the second and final years. The study of Economics gives you the opportunity to analyse some of today's profound problems, such as poverty and economic growth, developing economies, environmental protection, and financial and monetary crises. You also consider the dilemmas facing households, firms and governments, such as the provision of education, roles of labour markets and regulation of markets. Politics and international relations is an exciting, fast-changing, broad-based discipline. Our programmes are extremely flexible and offer extensive module choice, reflecting the research interests of our staff, including conflict resolution, federalism, comparative politics, European integration, ethnic conflict, terrorism, the theory of international relations, political theory, and the politics of countries such as China, Japan, Russia and the USA.
