Philosophy, Politics and Economics VL52
This programme aims to provide students with a coherent education in philosophy, politics and economics. The programme offers an integrated and flexible education in the three disciplines with opportunities to specialize as your interests develop. A range of teaching methods will be used across the disciplines and, in the final year, supervised research will lead towards a dissertation in one of the subjects. The range of skills you will develop will be applicable to further study or to a variety of careers.
The first year of the study programme aims to provide students with a firm and broad foundation for further study. The programme includes modules on: Ethics and Values, Knowledge and Reality, Ideas and Ideologies, and either Democratic Political Systems or one of the International Relations modules, Elements of Economics and Economics Methods. In your second and third years you will study Reason, Knowledge and Society together with five modules of your choice from a wide range of options offered in the three departments. In the third year you will write a dissertation, which counts as a double module, on a subject of your choice with a supervisor to assist and guide you, and take four further modules, which must include choices from at least two of the disciplines.
