Course summary

Economics examines some of the profound issues in our times: economic growth and sustainable development, unemployment, poverty, financial and monetary crises, trade and aid. As a Kent Economics student, you analyse and discuss these crucial areas and are challenged to contribute to possible solutions. On this programme you also study how economists use mathematical and statistical models to make economic forecasts. Our Economics with Econometrics degree builds on the single honours Economics programme with additional modules that examine the way in which economists construct and use mathematical and statistical models for forecasting and prediction. These can be used to help policymakers reach decisions concerning a range of economic problems. The School of Economics has particular strengths in the econometric analysis of microeconomic, macroeconomic and financial datasets. In your first year, you learn how economists think and become familiar with the tools they use for analysing real economic problems. You can also study modules in professional economics, as well as strategy and games. In your second and final years, you take compulsory modules in macroeconomics, microeconomics, quantitative economics, the economics of finance, and econometrics, together with a number of specialised optional modules. Our wide range of modules means you can tailor your degree to support your particular career ambitions; for example, you can choose modules that prepare you for life as a professional economist. You can also opt to take a Year in Industry as part of this course.
