Study economics and politics

We provide students with cutting edge local, national and international knowledge and practical experience in politics, economics and human rights. Our goal is to equip our students with theoretical and methodological tools necessary to understand individual and social group behaviour, and societal and state dynamics. We offer a number of combinations and specialisms in politics, economics and human rights to suit your own areas of interest.

Our economics courses provide you with multiple perspectives to economic theories and issues. You'll be introduced to a range of economic schools of thought, both traditional and alternative. Our approach focuses on delivering a practical, real-world approach to learning and fosters independent and critical thinking. This will help you develop a deeper understanding of the world and gain a more critical approach to economics.

Our economics course received 100 per cent overall student satisfaction (National Student Survey 2020).

By studying our economics and politics degrees, you'll develop practical skills as a researcher, activist and campaigner, engaging with current issues, all with the support of human rights and social justice specialists. You'll have multiple opportunities to take part in extracurricular projects through Kingston's Centre for Human Rights and Social Justice Practice.

Many of our courses have an integrated foundation year or the option to undertake a placement year. Click on the course you're interested in below to find out more.
