Course summary

The BSc (Hons) in Economics provides a structured, cumulative and rigorous foundation in economic concepts, principles, analysis, techniques and knowledge. During your studies, you will develop your analytical and decision-making abilities through training in quantitative and model-based methods of analysis. Students studying Economics at St Andrews have the opportunity to focus on macroeconomics, choice theory, behaviour economics, game theory, international economics and development, competition and innovation, and climate change. The BSc in Economics is a four-year course run by the School of Economics and Finance. The School also offers an MA in Economics, which may be more suitable for students who wish to take Economics alongside Arts subjects. The Economics element within both the BSc and MA degree programmes is exactly the same.

Sustainable Development is widely regarded as the most promising framework for addressing environmental and developmental challenges in the 21st century. These challenges include the provision of clean water and adequate sanitation, energy generation and supply, human health, food production and distribution, and the continuing threat to biodiversity. The MA (Hons) in Sustainable Development encourages students to rise to the challenges of the environment and society and focuses on the study of principles and practices of sustainability in an interdisciplinary environment. The MA (Hons) in Sustainable Development is a four-year course run by the School of Geography and Sustainable Development, with contributions from the Schools of Biology, Chemistry, Management and the Department of Social Anthropology.
