Combining two distinct disciplines, this course equips graduates with a unique blend of knowledge. Run in collaboration with the Department of Philosophy, it offers you the opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of how societies work. You can apply to spend part of your second year in locations such as Australia and Canada. The School of Economics is a recognised global leader in its field. It is situated on the beautiful University Park Campus in the Sir Clive Granger Building, which is named after the 2003 Nobel Prize winner for economic science, who spent more than 20 years studying and working at the University.
In your first year, you will cover the foundations of macro and microeconomics, and will typically take our Writing Economics module to ensure that your transition from school/college is smooth. Our dedicated careers module includes guidance on preparing your CV, interview techniques and applying for internships. For the philosophy element of this course, you will take specialist modules such as Appearance and Reality, and Elementary Logic. During your second year, you will build on your knowledge of macro and microeconomics, and will choose from a range of optional economics and philosophy modules. Your final year will provide you with the opportunity to select modules according to your interests and career aspirations as you choose 60 credits from economics and 60 credits from philosophy, with the possibility of a dissertation in philosophy.
