Overview

Economics at Essex is a home for the tenacious and bold: we encourage you to ask difficult questions so you can work with us to break intellectual boundaries and pioneer new solutions to issues of global concern. Mathematics develops strong problem-solving skills that will complement the economics side of your course and allow you to understand the more complex elements of the subject.

Our course gives you a thorough introduction to all aspects of economics and mathematics. You explore topics including:

- Micro and macroeconomics
- Qualitative and mathematical research methods
- Statistics
- Linear algebra
- Calculus

You examine the decisions of individuals, the strategies of firms and the policies of individuals to understand and challenge the standard rules of economics.

Our Department of Economics is rated consistently highly for student satisfaction, and is Top 5 in the UK for research, with over 90% of their research rated as “world-leading” or “internationally excellent” (REF 2014).

Meanwhile, our Department of Mathematical Sciences is genuinely innovative and student-focused; we are working on projects ranging from the economic impact of the behaviour of dairy cows, to understanding crowd behaviour through modelling a zombie apocalypse, to circular Sudoku and other puzzles.
