Overview

Both economics and mathematics are highly regarded disciplines that underpin contemporary life, and are both fascinating subjects in their own right. By the end of the programme you will have a highly sought-after mix of skills, equipping you to solve real-world problems in economics, finance, business and public policy.

Economics has become increasingly quantitative, with high-level mathematics and statistics skills essential for postgraduate study and many graduate jobs.

Our Economics and Mathematics programme takes core components of economics and blends these with modules that cover those aspects of mathematics that are most relevant for economists.

The student experience at the School of Economics is vital to the success of our programmes and, through a combination of lectures, tutorials, feedback and workshop sessions, you will be encouraged to express yourself and supported to achieve your full potential in a warm and friendly study environment.
