History and Economics BA (Hons)

It is possible to study Economics as a joint honours degree with History (50% Economics, 50% History).

A degree that includes Economics will appeal to anyone who wishes to study economic issues at local, national and international levels, while developing practical skills in business, finance and management which will subsequently be attractive to employers in both the private and public sectors. Economics has been defined as the study of human choice, and the impact of choice on the production, distribution and consumption of scarce resources. Microeconomics deals with choice at the individual level, and macroeconomics analyses the economy as a whole. An Economics degree includes a core microeconomics and macroeconomics component, and a specialism focusing on the economic context of business decision making. You will develop an awareness of applications of economics in areas including business management, finance and public policy.

History is one of the most inspiring, dynamic and relevant subjects that can be studied at degree level. It has an established range of concerns, but it is always expanding and changing as it responds to new themes or ideas raised by other disciplines. It is also a very practical subject, and during your degree you will develop various transferable skills that employers value highly.
