Offering you the flexibility to tailor your module choice to your interests, this course provides a solid grounding in a wide range of techniques and skills sought after by employers.
Macroeconomics, microeconomics, mathematics and statistics form the core of the degree. The school offers a wide range of optional modules covering a diverse set of economics topics. You will also have the flexibility to select modules offered by other schools and departments across the University.
The mathematical and statistical modules in year one are available as either econometrics or quantitative economics. The former is available only to those with A level maths or equivalent, while the latter is available to everyone. These pathways continue in the second year, however you may switch from econometrics to quantitative economics in year two.
By the end of your course, you will have a thorough understanding of economic theory and how it is applied to the real world. You will also be familiar with the key analytical techniques that economists use in practice.
