Course summary

Economics is key to understanding some of the critical questions facing our world. This course will explore these questions while also examining some of the principles and theories that can help us to answer them.

The study of economics will also be supported by modules that provide students with an understanding of how to deal with and organise data in a comprehensive way, including modules in Financial Decision Making, New Directions in Economics, Econometrics, Financial Markets and Institutions and Behavioural Economics.

Develop transferable skills that are valued by professionals and industry experts, including well-evidenced empirical analysis and the ability to communicate economic ideas in reports and public audits.

Our Trading Room will give you a simulated experience on the same information platform used by leading decision-makers in finance, business and government.

Teaching and assessment

You will be taught through a combination of lectures, tutorials, seminars, group work and self-directed study.

Graduate careers

An Economics degree is ideal preparation for a career in business, finance and the civil service.

Since the global financial crisis of 2007/08, Economics has been at the centre stage of policy analysis, and the need for sound economic skills and competencies will be high for the foreseeable future.

Recent graduates have progressed on to roles such as SNP APO Functional Associate at GSK, Economic Advisor at the Government Economic Service and International Finance Manager at Weetabix.
