About this course

We make economic decisions every day, but how do these decisions affect others? How do the decisions made by businesses and financial institutions affect our society? This BSc Economics degree gives you an in-depth understanding of economic theory and the skills you need to work in sectors like finance, commerce and industry.

Your A level results will determine which core or compulsory modules you'll need to take. Please see the programme specification for the most up-to-date module lists.

You'll study economics with experts whose research has influenced international policy, learning in lectures and small classes. Our facilities include the behavioural economics laboratory and the Bloomberg Trading Suite - a realistic trading room environment with the most detailed financial data available.

You'll gain a specialist knowledge of:

  • microeconomics (the behaviour of individuals and businesses)

  • macroeconomics (the behaviour of the economy as a whole)

  • econometrics (applying mathematical and statistical models to economic systems)

You'll also have the freedom to shape your studies by choosing optional modules to suit your interests or career plans. You could choose international banking, risk management or public economics, for example.
