    Programme Description

    BA Philosophy, Politics and Economics can give you an insight into questions like: Why do political ideas, from Plato´s Republic to Rawl´s Law of Peoples, matter so much? Why is the state of the economy so important for the outcome of elections? How and why do governments try to regulate markets? What is globalisation and how does it impact our daily lives?

    Economic and political events dominate domestic and international news and impact on our day-to-day lives as well as shaping the future. This course explores all major areas of philosophy, political science, and economics including political theory and political behaviour, macro- and microeconomics, and major philosophical approaches.
    The first year combines a thorough introduction to the fundamentals of philosophy, politics and economics. In the second and third years, the course offers students, through a range of optional choices, a varied menu of area-oriented specialisms in the subjects in order to ensure a solid knowledge in at least two sub-fields of politics, philosophy and economics. Thus you are enabled to concentrate on the areas in which you have developed a particular interest, for example globalisation, normative and political theory, or political economy.
