The BA Economics and Politics dual honours degree focuses on the interaction between economic and political aspects of the modern world.
The course analyses political ideas, institutions and practices. And you'll develop the quantitative and analytical skills essential for economists to make informed judgements.
The balance between the two subjects is roughly equal. Over the duration of the course you'll take compulsory and optional modules in both subjects and the final year includes a project or dissertation in politics. Your economic skills are put into practice through a number of short projects in the Economics in Action module.
We offer you the chance to do a year-long work placement, starting after your second year. This is a great opportunity to get paid work experience with some of the UK's top employers who want to recruit the best students from Sheffield.
Recent placements have been with Bank of England, Lloyds Bank, IBM, ASOS and Mercedes-Benz.
