Introduction to B.A.(Hons.) Politics, Philosophy and Economics

In an increasingly interdependent but uneven world, analysis of normative claims (Philosophy), power constellations (Politics), and efficient allocation (Economics) must be brought together for an in-depth understanding of global political processes. B.A. (Hons.) Politics, Philosophy and Economics program helps students advance their ability to think broadly and critically, to see how different modes of analysis interact, and what their respective merits and limits are. As a student, you get to learn about the political conditions in which individuals act in the modern world. You get to confront your own prejudices, and to explore how you might contribute to changing this world.

B.A. (Hons.) Politics, Philosophy and Economics program aims to provide you with a good understanding of economics, politics and philosophy at introductory level. It introduces you to a range of concepts, theories, debates and methods from social science and philosophy and provides you with skills in qualitative and quantitative analysis and communication. This 3-year program aims to equip students with the analytical tools that allow for the de-construction of “big pictures” on crucial contemporary phenomena such as globalization, democratization or development, and for the evaluation of how policy choices affect human development.

B.A. (Hons.) Politics, Philosophy and Economics program combines three of the most prominent approaches to understanding the social and political world, the way its shapes individuals and the way individuals shape it. The knowledge and skills it inculcates in students are relevant for a whole range of careers, including but not restricted to politics, journalism, media, social activism, NGO sector, business, law, and academia. Students will emerge with honed debating skills and with a level of sophistication to their liking about society’s ills and the best way to address them. The Politics and Economics components will enable students to develop an understanding of the many social forces at work around them, and the Philosophy component enables them to reason about these forces with rigour. This program provides you with opportunities to explore topics including:
  • Globalization and International Relations
  • Philosophy and Political Theory
  • Democratic and Comparative Politics
  • Political Economy
  • Ethics and Public Policy
Politics students are in demand from a host of employees in Politics, Civil Service, Management, Journalism, Commerce, Business, Finance, NGO’s, Teaching and Graduate Research.
The student should have secured a minimum of 60% aggregate marks or equivalent grade in 10+2, in any discipline, to be eligible for this program.
