Course summary

On this course you will explore and develop a deep understanding of the increasingly critical economic and related issues that dominate the news agenda and shape the world in which we live. You will study practical issues in economics and explore the relationship between economics and society more widely.

This course places less emphasis on mathematical and statistical content, and instead you will focus on the relevance of these techniques to applied problems. You will still learn necessary maths skills in your core modules with extensive support, should you need it.

Placement

During the first two years of this course you will have additional timetabled support for pursuing and applying for internships and placements. You will then do a paid placement at a company or organisation in your third year (please note that a placement cannot be guaranteed). The Department of Economics also has a specialist placement officer who can provide you with one-to-one support in your placement applications and preparing for a placement.

Career

Our recent graduates have secured roles as economists with the Government Economic Service and consultancies such as PwC and KPMG. Others have entered related and non-related careers in finance, business, marketing, publishing, PR and media.
