The BA Philosophy, Politics and Economics degree is suited to those wishing to gain thorough and high-level training in economic science, but also wish to explore political science and philosophical approaches to understanding human behaviour. By studying this course you will be able to pursue a spectrum of interests within a single degree programme.
You will learn about the core areas of economics; from the global and domestic economy to how it can be improved. In addition to this you will also be taught to analyse a given economic, political or social problem using not only economic tools and concepts, but also those from political science and philosophy. You will learn how to apply this multifaceted approach in order to provide new insights, in comparison to an interpretation based only on a single social science discipline.
