The first year is similar to that of the BSc Economics course. You'll study economic theory and techniques, alongside mathematics modules. In the second and third year, the split between the two subjects is roughly equal.
The two subjects complement each other. You'll develop the analytical skills essential for economists to make sound judgements. Mathematics adds another dimension to your experience, making you a highly effective thinker and problem-solver.
The degree is flexible enough for you to choose a range of modules in mathematics and economics, as well as modules from other disciplines.
