The BSc Economics and Mathematics is a dual honours degree combining advanced mathematical and technical skills with the opportunity to apply these to real-world economic policy.
In the first year you'll take mostly mathematics modules as well as economic theory policy. In the second and third year, the split between the two subjects is roughly equal.
These two subjects complement each other. You'll develop the analytical skills essential for economists to make sound judgements and mathematics adds another dimension to your experience, making you a highly effective thinker and problem-solver.
Degrees with employment experience
We offer you the chance to do a year-long work placement, starting after your second year. This is a great opportunity to get paid work experience with some of the UK's top employers who want to recruit the best students from Sheffield.
Recent placements have been with Bank of England, Lloyds Bank, IBM, ASOS and Mercedes-Benz.
