We teach Economics, and the supporting analytical methods, from first principles, making our three-year degree equally suited to students with an A Level in Economics or beginners who have not studied it before. Our course weaves theory and evidence into policy analysis so that you can analyse and understand fundamental issues and topical concerns. You'll be able to choose from a wide range of optional Economics modules, or minor subjects, to tailor your studies to suit your interests and aspirations.
You begin your degree with modules including Principles of Economics and Quantitative Methods for Economics. You'll also choose a third subject drawn from Management School disciplines or from other subject areas. In your second year, you'll move on to courses such as an Introduction to Econometrics; Micro and Macroeconomic Principles; Game Theory; and Applied Macroeconomics. If you follow our Study Abroad variant, you'll spend your second year at a partner university in North America or Australasia. It is also possible to continue your study of a minor subject through your second and third years.
In your third year, you choose up to eight topics in Economics for specialist study, with each taught by an active researcher in the field. These include, for example, Public Economics, Human Resource Economics; Industrial Organisation; International Trade and International Business. Students who have performed well in their studies are also offered the opportunity of completing a Dissertation module in the third year.
