Course summary

The BSc Economics allows you to specialise in methodological modules, learn rigorous quantitative and analytical skills and apply this knowledge to your analysis of economic policy.You'll receive training in advanced methods, particularly mathematical and statistical, through the methodological pathway of modules we offer. You'll also be able to apply these methods to a variety of economic problems in modules in the applied pathway.In your first year you will be introduced to foundational economic principles and theories and develop your core quantitative skills in mathematical methods for economics. You will then build on your toolkit of theoretical and quantitative skills in your second and final years and receive cutting-edge training in analytical methods.Our degree is designed to give you the choice of which pathway you wish to specialise in. You'll have the same core and optional modules on the BA Economics and BSc Economics courses in the first and second years, so that you can study modules in both applied and methodological economics. At the end of your second year you will then decide if you wish to pursue the applied pathway (BA Economics), or the methodological pathway (BSc Economics). This will determine the modules you can choose to study in your final year.Degrees with employment experienceWe offer you the chance to do a year-long work placement, starting after your second year. This is a great opportunity to get paid work experience with some of the UK's top employers who want to recruit the best students from Sheffield. Recent placements have been with the Bank of England, Lloyds Bank, IBM, ASOS and Mercedes-Benz.
