Course summary

From understanding inflation or unemployment to learning about international trade, this joint honours degree will provide in-depth coverage of the required knowledge and techniques. This course enables you to study mathematics and learn key economic principles at the same time. You'll learn about the latest economic trends and techniques used to inform policy-making. The degree is run jointly with The School of Economics. Two thirds of your first year will be devoted to mathematics. You'll cover the core mathematical topics including calculus, probability and statistics. The remainder of the year focuses on economics, learning the fundamentals of micro and macroeconomics. Later years of the degree provide more flexibility with many optional modules, enabling you to tailor the course to your interests.

  • Core modules to learn the fundamentals of mathematics and economics
  • Freedom to choose from a wide range of exciting optional modules
  • No prior study of economics needed
  • Support from senior students on a range of important first-year maths topics is provided
  • Good preparation for a career in banking, government, international trade or education
There's a chance to spend time overseas through the university's study abroad programme, or apply for a work placement year as part of the course too. These are excellent ways in which to boost your CV when looking for jobs after graduation.


All students follow a common programme of study for the first year. You will focus on core modules that provide a solid foundation in the main mathematical topics. You'll build on your existing knowledge in areas such as calculus, probability and statistics. You will also study an overview of economics, covering micro and macroeconomics. Your time in the second year is equally split between mathematics and economics. You'll select a dedicated economics pathway - subject to your interests in microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics. Alongside this, you'll select a combination of maths and economics optional modules. All modules in the third year are optional. Your mathematical studies will be divided between topics such as data analysis and modelling, linear analysis and stochastic models. You could choose to do a mathematics project, giving you the chance to work on a self-directed investigation based on a substantial mathematical problem. Supervision will be provided by an academic member of staff. This is an excellent opportunity to develop IT and report writing skills. You will complement the maths modules by choosing economics modules from an extensive list available.
