Course summary

Few would deny that economic issues have been at the heart of historical change or that understanding the modern economy requires an understanding of historical developments. This varied and dynamic degree will give you a deep understanding of the historical origins of economic growth and the real-world economic challenges and opportunities of the modern world. You’ll develop into a well-rounded economist and historian with a unique set of skills that that will stand out to employers. Core modules will introduce you to key concepts and approaches in both subjects, such as historiography, public history, archival research, economic theory and statistics. You’ll build on this when you choose from an impressive range of optional modules spanning periods, cultures and sectors. You could study anything from labour economics and macroeconomic performance to ethics and the global banking sector, alongside the Industrial Revolution, the East India Company, the slave trade, and decolonisation. It’s a fantastic opportunity to discover new perspectives on history, and the present, and gain a broad base of technical knowledge and skills.
