This joint honours degree will be of interest to students who are interested in social and political studies and the humanities.
Due to the strong connections among the three different disciplines, the knowledge and skills acquired in each reinforce those gained in the others. As a student, you will not only come to a broader understanding of modern societies, political institutions and economic policies, but you will also gain insight into the philosophical theories that drive crucial decisions made by businesses and governments.
This degree is especially suitable for students aiming for a career in politics, finance and the media.
