In Politics, you will examine the history and basis of political ideas and critically reflect upon the nature and activities of political institutions. You will have the chance to learn how political decisions concern, and are influenced by, economic matters. You will also critically engage with a range of economic models and theories.
The first year At Lancaster University's Philosophy, Politics and Economics (Hons) is designed to enable you to develop a firm grounding in each of the three disciplines through the core modules: Introduction to Philosophy; Politics in the Modern World, and Principles of Economics.
In your second and third years, you’ll develop your skills and knowledge, choosing from a range of optional modules in the three subject areas. For example: Modern Political Thought: Liberty, Theory and Practice; The Ethics of Belief and Ignorance; Managerial Economics, International Economics and Issues in Contemporary Politics and Philosophy.
A Philosophy degree provides you with the opportunity to develop knowledge and transferable skills relevant to a range of different future careers. According to the most recent Destination of Leavers from Higher Education Survey, 6 months on from graduation, our Philosophy graduates have gone on to careers in Public Relations, HR and recruitment, teaching and education, legal research and logistics and project management. We will help you determine your direction and aim to support you in getting there. We do this by offering subject-specific support from academic tutors and specialist careers advisers.
