This degree aims to equip students with the tools and frameworks to analyse economic issues, as well as the skills necessary to explore and analyse new issues as they emerge in the current dynamic economic environment. Topics such as unemployment, inflation house prices and poverty are hotly debated in the media today. Studying Economics at Lincoln gives students the opportunity to develop their awareness of the integrated and multidisciplinary nature of economics around the world. Fundamental to the subject is a commitment to fostering respect for good academic practice and standards, as well as the confidence to challenge established wisdom.
The first year of this course introduces core micro, macro and international economics, together with modules in econometric analysis to give students the opportunity to develop expertise in the statistical techniques used to analyse and interpret economic data. Intermediate micro and macroeconomics are studied in the second year and are prerequisites for the advanced modules which are covered in year three. A range of optional modules in the second and third years are designed to and enable students to tailor their learning in line with their interests and career aspirations.
