Why does the gender pay gap exist? How do government policies affect us? What motivates our behaviours and choices? Understanding why we do what we do is key to the economist's role and this knowledge can inform policy in areas as diverse as education, the environment, commerce, transport, globalisation and health. On our BSc Economics, you will study macroeconomics, microeconomics, mathematics and statistics and gain all the core analytical and quantitative techniques required by economics graduates. You can tailor your studies to your career aspirations through optional modules that allow you to specialise in areas such as economic policy analysis, international trade and behavioural economics. You can also enhance your CV by studying abroad at our campuses in China or Malaysia or with a partner institution in locations like Australia, Canada or Japan. You will graduate with all the knowledge, practical skills and confidence you need to stand out to employers as you start your career.
Providing you with a solid grounding in introductory economic theory, mathematics and statistics, your first year of study will focus on the relevance of such methods to the study of economic questions of cultural, political and social importance. In year two, you will develop your analytical skills and knowledge of the core disciplines of economics and quantitative methods, as well as the major sub-disciplines of economics. In your final year, you will examine the major themes in economics at an advanced level and build on the topics covered in previous years. You will select modules that interest you from a wide range of specialist options that reflect our research expertise in both theoretical and applied aspects of the discipline. Under the guidance of your supervisor, you will also undertake a year-long dissertation on a topic of your choice and will gain experience of the research process.
