What will you study on the BA International Politics, Economics and Law?
This programme is made up of year-long 30 credit taught modules, with a strong emphasis on undertaking an internship or work placement in Year 2 or 3. You will study a combination of the three disciplines within an international framework and a specific focus on the developing world. You will focus on human rights, as understood from the legal, political and social science perspectives, and key cross-cutting themes include gender and environmental change. Your study during the first two years will provide the basis to develop in-depth knowledge of a specialist area in the final year through your choice of options and an independent study undertaken during the final year core module.
What will you gain?
During the three years of study, you will develop your ability to reflect upon and evaluate the principles, values and ideologies underlying perspectives on politics, law and economics. You will be able to locate and critically evaluate different sources of information and analyse and synthesise this information to construct evidenced arguments. You will present clear and convincing arguments through your written work and through oral presentations and have the expertise and skills to study, in-depth, a particular topic of interest, evaluate the existing policy frameworks related to this topic and provide recommendations for improvement.
