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.
