Economics and Politics BA

The BA Economics and Politics dual honours degree focuses on the interaction between economic and political aspects of the modern world.

The course analyses political ideas, institutions and practices. And you'll develop the quantitative and analytical skills essential for economists to make informed judgements.

The balance between the two subjects is roughly equal. Over the duration of the course you'll take compulsory and optional modules in both subjects and the final year includes a project or dissertation in politics. Your economic skills are put into practice through a number of short projects in the Economics in Action module.
