About

The Politics and Economics (Hons) programme from the Aston University is designed to provide you with an intellectually rigorous and up-to-date education in the disciplines of Politics and Economics which will help you to identify and achieve your personal, academic and professional goals.

Overview

The Politics and Economics (Hons) programme from the Aston University takes a multidisciplinary approach for those wishing to draw the connections between political and economic phenomena. 

On the Politics side, you will acquire the ability to analyse and understand political problems, socio-cultural change and political institutions and structures. 

On the Economics side, you will develop a range of tools needed to solve a variety of complex economic problems. To facilitate this, you will familiarise yourself with appropriate research and analytical skills, developing an ability to investigate a range of political and economic issues, and gaining a sound understanding of how economic and political issues are often closely inter-related in today’s globalised mass society.

Learning, teaching & assessment

You will participate in lectures, tutorials, seminars, group and individual project work.  Traditional teaching is supported by a virtual learning environment that is used to host a range of electronic supporting materials.

The course deals with many topical issues, and as a result we try to incorporate current media coverage and public debates into class discussions and to link these to academic research and commentary wherever possible.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Introduction to Studying and Researching Politics
  • British Politics since 1990
  • Introduction to Micro Economics
  • Introduction to Macro Economics
