Course summary

What makes some countries richer than others? How does society fund social care? Why are footballers paid so much? An understanding of economics gets to the heart of how the world works. It’s also highly prized by employers in the private and public sectors.You don’t need an Economics A level. We start from first principles, looking at issues in the real world. Our degree weaves theory and evidence into policy analysis. This allows you to understand fundamental issues and topical concerns. In the BA in Economics, we give students a broader appreciation of key issues in society, by combining Economic analysis with insights from the other Social Sciences. Therefore, in your first year you will also choose one subject from the Social Science subjects Politics, International Relations, History, or Sociology, and another subject from a wide range of options. You will continue with your study of social science throughout your degree.In the second year, you will progress to topics such as Micro and Macroeconomics, and Quantitative Methods, which provide many of the analytical tools used in Economics, along with some economics options and one full unit from the social sciences.Your final year sees you choosing six modules in economics and two in the social sciences. We offer a wide range of Economics modules, from Public Economics to International Trade and Health Economics, so you can tailor your studies to suit your aspirations.Throughout your degree, we’ll supply training in CV writing, interview assessment centres and telephone interviews. We are proud of our aspiring economists and aim to nurture the potential in every one of them.
