The BSc Economics allows you to specialise in methodological modules and learn rigorous quantitative and analytical skills, whilst also having the opportunity to learn about real-world economic policy.

You'll receive training in advanced methods, particularly mathematical and statistical through the methodological pathway of modules. You'll also be able to apply these methods to a variety of economic problems in modules in the applied pathway.

Year one will build the foundation for the rest of your degree. You'll study core economic principles and theories, and develop your core quantitative skills in mathematical methods for economics.

In year two you'll build on your toolkit of theoretical and quantitative skills. Modules in your final year will give you cutting-edge training in analytical methods.

By choosing a dissertation, you'll have the chance to demonstrate your ability to independently undertake an extended piece of research and apply advanced methods to the analysis of a specific economic problem
