You get the same solid grounding in theory and techniques as you would on the BA. You'll develop the quantitative and analytical skills economists need to make informed judgements and forecasts.
In the first year, you'll take modules in economic analysis, policy and mathematical and statistical methods for economics. Optional modules include Economic History of Britain and the Modern World, Introductory Finance for Economics and Classical and Contemporary Thinkers in Economics.
In the second and third years, you build on what you've learned and take optional modules in aspects of economics that interest you. Advanced Microeconomics and Macroeconomics help prepare you for work as a professional economist.
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.
