Overview

Is there a trade-off between the environment and growth? Will the internet bring down the music industry? Should we ban or tax unhealthy food? What caused the global economic crisis and can government action reverse it?

The Economics course includes compulsory modules covering theoretical, applied and quantitative aspects of economics. Option choices enable you to shape your degree to suit your own interests. Potential specialisms include: business, international, social and development aspects of economics. You will also research and write a dissertation within the context of economics.

The economics courses locate the discipline within the real world, enabling you to use economics to analyse practical problems like these.

The university offers a wide range of degree courses, with opportunities for placements and study abroad.

The economics degrees will provide you with analytical and communication skills that are highly sought after by employers. Graduates go on to work in banking, finance, marketing, accounting and management, whilst there are opportunities to directly use your economics knowledge, particularly in the Civil Service, local government or teaching. All students study a core of economic theory and applications, with particular applications and further specialisms depending on degree path.
