UoL graduates have found work with a huge variety of employers including multilateral and intergovernmental organisations, non-governmental organisations, banking and accounting services, local and national governments, educational establishments, and media and publishing companies. Others have opted to continue studying these academic disciplines, or have transferred the skills they developed to other disciplines, such as law.

The building blocks of
the programme

If you want to prepare for a career in government or international roles in a corporate organisation or NGO, this interdisciplinary degree is a perfect match. Developed by a world-leading institution in the field of economics and political science, this degree will help you understand key issues facing the international community, such as the causes of war and globalisation.

As with all BSc Programmes designed by the LSE (London School of Economics), students take four courses each year, made up of a combination of compulsory and optional choices.


NB: availability of courses depends on student interest, and not all of the above courses may be available for study during years 2 and 3. Some courses carry pre-requisites – please refer to the UoL course list for additional information. Please note that students select a maximum of 4 courses per year of study.

In the third year of your bachelor’s degree, you will do an internship. An internship gives you the best opportunities to gain valuable work experience, whilst also exploring and testing a career path. Students who accomplish their research or consulting project with an external organisation will ipso facto validate their internship.

An internship during college prepares you for the world of work and its challenges.
