The programme is designed to provide you with an intellectually rigorous and up-to-date education in the disciplines of Politics and Economics which will help you to identify and achieve your personal, academic and professional goals. The course takes a multidisciplinary approach for those wishing to draw the connections between political and economic phenomena. On the Politics side, you will acquire the ability to analyse and understand political problems, socio-cultural change and political institutions and structures. On the Economics side, you will develop a range of tools needed to solve a variety of complex economic problems. To facilitate this, you will familiarise yourself with appropriate research and analytical skills, developing an ability to investigate a range of political and economic issues, and gaining a sound understanding of how economic and political issues are often closely inter-related in today’s globalised mass society.
