POLITICS, PHILOSOPHY AND ECONOMICS BA (Hons)

Take an innovative approach to the study of philosophy, politics and economics – and their application to the contemporary world.

This course will give you a range of opportunities to think about the major challenges we face at local, national and international levels, and by combining these subjects, to come up with ideas and approaches to dealing with them.

With a strong emphasis on problem solving and creative thinking, this is a course for those of you who want both to understand the ways in which the world works, and to question them.

Our Politics, Philosophy and Economics course draws on a variety of disciplines in the Humanities, Sciences, and Social Sciences.

The first year provides the building blocks for subsequent study, through which you'll develop expertise in each of these three broad areas.

The final year project is an opportunity to synthesise and apply your knowledge and understanding across all of these disciplines, bringing them together in a major piece of work.

Campus Information

NEWTON PARK

There can’t be many campuses that rival Newton Park. The parkland estate has everything you’d expect from a modern university, as well as a castle and a lake. All this and it's only four miles from the buzz of central Bath.

Job Opportunity Potential

We’ve got lots to share with you and to help we have split our work into three elements which will support you with:

  • Exploring your options
  • Gaining valuable experience
  • Progressing your ideas and career plans

At Bath Spa we believe you are continually exploring your options and experiencing different pathways to progression, but that this journey is not linear. It keeps on going throughout your time with us and when you leave. Some of our services cross all three areas and allow you to explore, experience and progress all in one, such as The Bath Spa Award.

We encourage you to read resources and attend events across all stages of Explore, Experience and Progress as they will offer beneficial insight and development opportunities regardless of the current stage you are at in your career journey.
