Philosophy and Economics (BA)

  • VL51

3 years (Full-time) / n/a (Part-time) / n/a (Distance / E-Learning)

The Joint Honours degree in Philosophy and Economics provides you with the opportunity of specialising in two university honours subjects. Many students find joint honours both stimulating and rewarding as they observe both similarities and differences in the two subjects. Often there are complementary issues and perspectives as well as skills and that link the subjects, be they critical analysis, historical contexts or recent research. Each school involved in delivering the degree offers a challenging programme of modules, supported by a friendly atmosphere and excellent staff-student relationships. For fuller information about each of the subjects, please visit the two separate subject entries on Course Finder.
