Do you want to study economics while immersing yourself in Hispanic culture? Do you want to gain a global perspective on your studies and enhance your CV? Would you like to put your Spanish or Portuguese language skills to good use? This four-year BA Economics degree is offered in collaboration with the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures. Through studying macroeconomics, microeconomics, mathematics and statistics, you’ll gain all the core analytical and quantitative techniques required by economics graduates. You’ll also become proficient in Spanish or Portuguese through modules that develop your existing language skills. You can tailor your studies to your individual career aspirations through optional modules, and you’ll spend your third year either studying and/or on work placement in Spain, Portugal or Latin America.
In your first year you will cover the foundations of microeconomics and macroeconomics, and will choose between econometrics and quantitative economics, depending on your mathematical ability. You will also study a full-year language module that will enhance your language skills. During your second year, you will build on your knowledge of microeconomics and macroeconomics and strengthen your knowledge of either econometric theory or applied econometrics. Two‑thirds of this year will focus on economics, and the remainder will develop your understanding of your chosen country as well as your language skills. You will spend your third year studying abroad and/or on a work placement in Spain, Portugal or Latin America. You will get the opportunity to broaden your horizons and enhance your employability by experiencing another culture. Teaching is in Spanish or Portuguese. For your final year you will return to Nottingham. Your economics studies will focus on a dissertation and some optional modules, while you refine your newly fluent language skills in a final language module and your choice from a list of optional modules.
