Course summary

Economics is at play every day, in all areas of our lives.

Whether it’s the global implications of the Euro crisis, fluctuations in employment or even the price of milk in the supermarket, economics is the driving force.

Many of our lecturers are recognised for their ‘internationally excellent’ research into economics and its application to the real world. This research-led approach will give you a valuable insight into the ways in which financial decisions affect individuals, businesses and societies on a local and global level.

Assessment

Assessment varies from module to module and includes a combination of exams, written essays and project work.

Your tutors will give feedback in a variety of forms depending on the specific needs of the module. This may consist of written feedback, in-class discussion, model answers, one-to-one discussions or online responses.

Careers and skills

This flexible course has been developed to provide you with the skills to meet the needs of the business world. Whether you’re looking for a career in banking, finance, the public sector, an information organisation or in management consultancy, career prospects for graduates are excellent.

Following graduation around a third of our students go on to postgraduate study and many progress to an MSc here at York. The Department of Economics has one of the largest graduate schools in the country for training and research.
