Course summary

Apply economic analysis to national and international problems, and develop a deep understanding of modern economic policy issues that dominate the news agenda. You'll study practical issues in economics and explore the relationship between economics and society more broadly.This course places less emphasis on mathematical and statistical content than the BSc Economics; instead, you'll focus on the relevance of these techniques to applied problems. You will still learn necessary maths skills in your core modules, where extensive support is available should you need it. Enhance your employability by doing a year-long work placement, in an industrial setting, between your second and final year. A placement is a valuable way to develop your skills, experience the workplace, and build your network.For more information, please visit the programme page: https://www.reading.ac.uk/ready-to-study/study/subject-area/economics-ug/ba-economics-with-placement-year
