Economics is at the heart of what we hear and read about in the news – from interest rates and food prices to the job market and global trade.
Our Economics degree is firmly rooted in the real world. You’ll study the ways in which people and businesses respond to incentives, and the production and allocation of resources.
In the first two years you’ll cover both macroeconomics – the economy as a whole including themes such as unemployment, taxation, investment and inflation; and microeconomics – the behaviour and motivations of individuals and companies. You’ll also learn to apply quantitative techniques to investigate relationships between economic variables.
Final-year options apply this core knowledge to more specialised areas such as labour, industrial and health economics, technology and innovation, and business cycles. You can also choose from a number of finance modules.
Throughout your studies you’ll have use of a dedicated Bloomberg trading room, giving you access to the same economic and financial data used by practitioners in industry.
