Course summary

The applied nature of our BSc (Hons) Economics degree prepares you to work as an economist, or in a related role which is concerned with the study of the economy and its impact on society and the natural environment. Economics is a social science which informs major challenges faced by our societies today, including inequality, environmental sustainability and economic policy. The course will provide you with a firm foundation of economics to interpret, analyse and question diverse economic theories and policies in a real-life context. The course equips you with a vast analytical toolkit, which includes mathematical and statistical analysis, critical thinking, qualitative techniques, and proficiency in a range of industry-specific software packages that are relevant to the economics profession. You will also learn how to communicate results and ideas concisely to a variety of specialist and non-specialist audiences. Economics is a global subject. You will be encouraged to look at situations from an international perspective. You will apply the knowledge learned in the course to examine global events and look at how different economic ideas help us understand and address global challenges such as poverty, inequality, climate change and the impact of new technologies on the economy and society. Professional Placement Year This course offers a professional placement year. This allows you to spend a whole year with an employer, between the second and third years of your degree, and is a great way to find out more about your chosen career. Some students even return to the same employers after completing their studies. The University will draw on its extensive network of local, regional and national employers to support you in finding a suitable placement to complement your chosen area of study. If you do not find a suitable placement, you will be automatically transferred back to the standard, non-placement version of the course. Please note that fees are payable during your placement year.
