Course summary

How do government economic policies affect us? What drives inflation and interest rates? How can using mathematical models help tackle unemployment? Our BSc Mathematics and Economics explores these questions and more. This course enables you to study mathematics whilst learning key economic principles. It is run jointly with the School of Economics. About mathematics and economics at the University of Nottingham You will study core first-year mathematics modules in topics such as calculus, probability and statistics. This will develop your skills in problem solving and analytical thinking. The year will include an overview of economics, covering micro and macro economics. As you progress to the later years of your degree, you'll have more flexibility to choose topics from optional modules. You'll choose a dedicated economics pathway subject to your interests in:

  • microeconomics
  • macroeconomics
  • econometrics
In your final year you have the option to do a mathematics group project. This gives you the chance to work collaboratively on a substantial maths problem. You'll be supervised by expert teaching staff. This is an excellent opportunity to develop your report-writing and team-working skills. Careers and employability These transferable skills can help in your career planning. Many of our graduates work in roles including government, international trade and education.


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.
