The Politics and International Relations with Economics (Hons) programme at New College of the Humanities will equip you to analyse political institutions and their actions effectively. 

You will gain a deeper understanding of states, how they interact with each other, and the comparisons between them, as well as learning about the wider structures which influence human well-being and wealth. 

You will also develop the quantitative skills needed to engage with academic economics as commonly practised. You will take a course in political theory, and compare that with your knowledge of current political institutions and the real-life economic events and decisions which take place within them.  

Programme aims

The programme aims to:

• analyse texts, evidence, and other literary texts, with guidance, using given approaches, techniques, and principles, in order to understand the centrality of human activity and discourse to political science, the contribution of major schools of thought and mainstream thinkers embedded within primarily Western, but also Eastern traditions of modern political thought;

• collect and categorise ideas and information in a predictable and standard format by applying theories and methods of policy, institutional and behavioural analysis;

• evaluate critically material so as to contribute to existing debates on topical issues relating to power delegation, power shifts and distribution, the nature, evolution and operation of different political systems and their organisational structures.

● encourage the student to think rigorously about economic theory, and the origins of economic thought, and help the student understand economic conditions in different institutional, geographic and socioeconomic settings.
