Join a university ranked in the UK top five for maths research (THE analysis of REF 2021) with an excellent reputation for teaching and learning (UK top ten for maths, QS World University Rankings by subject 2023). BSc Economics and Mathematics combines high-level mathematics with a technically rigorous economics programme that emphasises the use of mathematical tools, including econometrics - the application of statistical methods to data to estimate economic models. Mandatory economics units develop your understanding of micro- and macro-economics, while the mathematics portion builds your mathematical ability and allows you to explore applied topics that are particularly relevant to economics. Having built a solid grounding in the fundamentals of both disciplines in your first year, the second and third years allow you to choose optional units to tailor your degree to your specific interests, including the option to carry out research in an applied economics dissertation. Previously, economics options have included topics such as Behavioural Economics, Data Science, International Economics and Macroeconomic Theory and Policy. Mathematics options have included Complex Networks, Financial Mathematics and Time Series Analysis.
