University of Manchester has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
The BA(Econ) course is an interdisciplinary course allowing you to specialise in Economics, along with other social science units such as philosophy, politics, and sociology. You have the flexibility to either delve into technical units in Economics, such as Econometrics and Mathematical Economics or combine economics units covering inequality and climate change, with social science units, to develop a well-rounded understanding on social issues. Our Politics department is one of the largest groupings in the UK, making this course sought after for exploring comparative politics, international politics, and political theory. Economics and all joint social science pathways share a common first year, allowing you to switch to a different pathway, should you discover interests in other social sciences.
