Are you interested in Politics, Economics and Philosophy and Current Affairs? - Then this could be the course for you!
You will be taught how to analyse information and offer critical and thoughtful solutions to Current Global Topics such as:
Current Affairs and offer solutions to current political problems like the "Bombing of Syria" or "The Current Refugee Crisis in Europe – Causes and the Solution"
Economic and Fiscal Policies that govern our everyday lives like "Should Interest Rates be Raised" or "Should the UK Remain in the EU".
This course is for students who are interested in Politics, Economics, Philosophy and Current Affairs. It would suit students that see themselves as tomorrow’s potential leaders and would like to enter a Political, Diplomatic or United Nations career. Any student who is seriously contemplating entering a “top” University either in the UK or abroad in Economics, International Relations or Political Science should consider this. The knowledge gained in those subjects and their application shape our everyday lives for the “better” or “worst”. Through exciting lessons, workshops, and lively debates, problems faced by our global leaders today are discussed with the focus on how these problems would be tackled by our new young global leaders.
The academic content of this course is based upon the modules and objectives taught in the 1st year undergraduate subjects of Economic, PPE, International Relations in LSE, London and Oxford Colleges.
