Course summary

Economics examines some of the profound issues in our times: economic growth and sustainable development, unemployment, poverty, financial and monetary crises, trade and aid. As a Kent Economics student, you analyse and discuss these crucial areas and are challenged to contribute to possible solutions. On this programme you also explore the economic tools used in financial and money markets. Our Financial Economics degree introduces you to the tools that economists have developed in financial and money markets. This work has been enormously influential in contributing to the development of financial instruments used by households, firms and governments when making decisions about saving or borrowing. The use of real-world examples is a particular feature of this course. In your first year, you learn how economists think and become familiar with the tools they use for analysing real economic problems. You can also study modules in professional economics, as well as strategy and games. In your second and final years, you take compulsory modules in macroeconomics, microeconomics, quantitative economics, the economics of money and banking, and the economics of finance, together with a number of specialised optional modules. Our wide range of modules means you can tailor your degree to support your particular career ambitions; for example, you can choose modules that prepare you for life as a professional economist. You can also opt to take a Year in Industry as part of this course.
