New College of the Humanities

Course Introduction

The central purpose of the Economics major is to help students understand the structures that influence well'being and wealth. The Economics programmes at the College encourage students to think critically about the building blocks of the discipline of Economics, as well as enable them to use their knowledge to understand economic events and decisions in the real world. The study of Politics comprises political theory looking at normative questions, and political science looking at the organisation of government. International Relations examines governance, institution'building and decision'making through an analysis of historical phenomena, economic conditions, diplomatic relations, security and socio'cultural linkages amongst state and non'state sectors. As a minor subject Politics and International Relations encourages students to engage with the theory and practice of state'building, as well as state and non'state engagement.
