Course summary

Economics at Greenwich aims to provide you with the intellectual abilities and analytical tools to understand, analyse and act upon the most challenging issues of our time. We believe economics must help to build and more equitably share prosperity, create meaningful employment, and ensure the transition to a carbon-neutral future. We have responded to calls from students and industry alike to change the way we do economics: we are a national leader in applied real-world economics that learns from history and embraces diversity. Our BSc Economics degree gives you the option to specialise in finance after your first year, or you can continue in the standard degree programme. In your time with us you will gain the knowledge and skills essential for either graduate employment or post-graduate study. Our graduates have pursued successful careers in industry, finance, the civil service, NGOs, research and education. What you should know about this course

All degree courses are made up of modules – individual units of study on different topics. Some modules are compulsory; others can be chosen from a list of options. Our website has full details of your degree structures, module content, and how each module is assessed. The direct link to this course on our website, can be found at the bottom of this page.
