Course summary

Economics and Sociology is a perfect partnership to add to your thorough grounding in the global economy and the many factors that influence wealth from a social and financial perspective, with a deeper exploration of what society means and how it shapes us as individuals in all sorts of ways. Top-rated teaching and a culture of dynamic research and excellent transferable skills will ensure you are a sought-after graduate by employers in many sectors.In Economics, you will explore the microeconomics of business and society, macroeconomics of the world economy and economic problems in political, social and historical contexts, with a strong emphasis on applied learning. You will thrive in the dynamic, international environment of our Business School of 45 nationalities and be taught by experts including leading petroleum economist and government adviser Professor Alex Kemp and our health economists whose work influences Scottish and UK policy decisions on public health.In Sociology, you will dig deeply into the ‘society’ influences on the economy, studying topics as wide-ranging as work-life balance, sociology of the family, religion and society. You will be taught by academic staff with international reputations for conducting high-quality research in social movements and global political sociology, religion and secularisation, conflict and peace. You will become skilled in the social research methods used to gather the evidence to better understand aspects of society – including observation, interviews, large-scale surveys, or analysing the content of documents and videos.This subject combination will give you great skills in thinking critically and posing probing questions – skills which have tremendous value to employers across the public, private and third sectors, with career paths including business, management, marketing and advertising, journalism, local and national government, social and market research, teaching, health services, social work, charities and human resources.
