Course summary

Economics

The BA Economics (two subject degree) combines economics with another discipline or language and takes 3 or 4 years depending on the subject involved. It provides you with a thorough grounding in economic principles while allowing you to create a specialist niche for yourself by studying another subject. See the 'Combinations' tab to see what it may be combined with.

Global Development

The BA Global Development Combined Honours Degree is a 3-year full time degree (or 4 years when combined with a Language) draws upon the significant expertise of our academic staff.

This stimulating programme examines key topics in international development, while analysing the roles and impact of a wide variety of regional and international actors. By the time you graduate, you will have cultivated a deep knowledge of the causes of and responses to poverty, marginalisation and vulnerability in developing countries and the process of dramatic social, economic and political change.

Additionally, the nature of the Combined Honours degree enables you to develop a specialist niche for yourself by studying a second subject.
