Explore the driving forces behind human behaviour. Discover how human psychology can guide people to make economic decisions. How do people get in debt? Why do people choose to get a mortgage rather than rent? Why did the economic crisis affect the UK more than the US? Economics at Essex explores how economics relates to the real world and asks the difficult questions.
On BSc Economics with Psychology you develop key mathematical skills and explore how you can use data to interpret the global economy, economic drivers behind human behaviour and the human mind. Through combining economics with psychology you gain a deepened knowledge as to why individuals are not always behaving in their own best interests. Understanding this and the frameworks of behavioural economics can help policymakers create environments that nudge people towards making wiser decisions and healthier lives.
