Course summary

This course is ideal if you are strong at maths and wish to use it within the context of economics. You will develop an understanding of the conceptual underpinnings of economics and econometric methods, and how the two can be combined and used to address practical issues.

In addition to traditional lectures, you will partake in small group tutorials in which you can discuss and analyse theory and practice through case studies, group presentations and open debate. You will have the opportunity to extend your study of economics beyond the classroom through our student-run Economics Society, which has arranged lectures on topics ranging from "How happy are you?" to "Are you a Marxist economist?" as well as conversations with economists on topical matters such as the economics of health and feminism.

Career

Our graduates are in high demand as a result of the analytical skills and specialist knowledge of economics they develop through this course. 94% of graduates from the Department of Economics are in work or further study within six months of graduating (Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey, 2016/17).

Our recent graduates have secured roles as economists with the Government Economic Service and consultancies such as PwC and KPMG. Others have entered related and non-related careers in finance, business, marketing, publishing, PR and media.
