Course summary

**Overview**How do the choices of individuals and firms combine to drive the modern global economy? And how can this economy be best aligned with human goals? On our flagship degree in economics, combined with a year abroad, you'll develop an understanding of what makes the world tick. In your third year you'll spend a year abroad at one of our many partner universities across the world. This is your chance to study while immersed in a completely different culture – giving you the academic and personal experience of a lifetime. You’ll discover how economic policy can affect social change, and you’ll start to form your own ideas about how to make our world a better place. **About This Course**An economics degree is ideal for you if you have a curious and questioning nature. You enjoy analysing numbers and at the same time you’re fascinated by people and human behaviour. You might know exactly what career you want to go into – or you may know that an economics degree keeps your options open, possibly more than any other. Economics is a far broader subject than most people realise, and our BSc Economics degree enables you either to enjoy the full breadth of the discipline or to discover and develop you own area of personal interest. You may find your passion is for finance, derivatives, risk management or alternative investments; or for public-sector economics, political economy, or environmental economics; or for international economics, trade or development economics; or for competition economics, labour economics, behavioural economics, or the economics of sport; or indeed for the history of economic thought or for any one of many other offered specialisms. You'll explore all areas of the economy, from microeconomic and macroeconomic perspectives. You'll learn to use economic models and real-world data to gain deep insights about business, politics and markets. Combining BSc Economics with a year abroad, in your third year you'll spend a year abroad at one of our many partner universities across the world. This is your chance to study your degree while immersed in a completely different culture – giving you the academic and personal experience of a lifetime. Based in the School of Economics, you’ll be taught by a lively, friendly, research-oriented team, committed to teaching excellence and focused on facilitating your growth and success. Our School is globally respected, especially for its pioneering and world-leading work in behavioural economics. Our active research areas also include macroeconomics, competition economics, environmental policy, conflict theory, finance, and labour market studies in education, family and welfare. You’ll be joining a vibrant and diverse community. Our student-led Economics Society is the perfect place to network and socialise with fellow students with shared interests. The Norwich Economic Papers, run by a Student Editorial Board, and the ECO Blog are outlets within which you can publish your work. Our within-school internships enable you to participate directly in frontier research. And our Staff Student Liaison Committee gives you a say in the future direction and every day running of the school. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
