Overview

Along with this economics degree we also offer BA(Hons) Economics. On both, you’ll apply the latest economic theories to real and relevant challenges, develop critical thinking and debate ideas from a range of perspectives.

The BSc course gives you the chance to develop your technical skills to a more advanced level and requires A level mathematics. The BA degree provides a rigorous and accessible economics training to those with less mathematical experience.

On both pathways, you’ll be taught by a passionate and enthusiastic team of research-active staff with a growing reputation for being at the cutting edge of new ideas in economics.

Learn to analyse a wide range of economic issues, such as where does wealth come from? Is our way of life sustainable? Is global trade a force for good? How does the banking and financial system affect our lives? Will robots take people’s jobs? Is inequality getting worse and does it matter?

UWE Bristol takes a unique pluralist approach to teaching economics. As well as using traditional textbooks, you’ll draw on ideas from a range of viewpoints and disciplines, placing economics in its broader social and political context.

With an emphasis on developing key skills and critical thinking while gaining real-world experience, you’ll get regular access to industry and policy-making through placements, field trips and guest lectures.

Career opportunities

High demand for economics graduates means you’ll have diverse career prospects and a competitive place in the jobs market.

This course is an ideal launch pad for a career in government (for example the Government Economic Service), banking, finance, management, accountancy, marketing, corporate finance, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), charities and postgraduate studies.

Previous graduates have gone on to work as economists in the Government Economic Service, including the Treasury and the Home Office; in finance and banking for organisations such as Lloyds Banking Group, HSBC and Goldman Sachs; and as economists and analysts across industry and the retail sector.
