Course summary

TEF Silver

University of Bristol has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.

Find out more about the TEF.

We are pioneers of the innovative 'core econ' approach to teaching economics, which seeks to reconnect the study of economics with our experience of real life.

BSc Economics builds on this approach, with core mandatory units in economics and econometrics as well as a broad range of optional units which give you the opportunity to study varied areas. Popular units to date have included:

  • History of Economic Thought;

  • Industrial Economics;

  • International Economics;

  • Labour Economics;

  • Macroeconomic Theory and Policy;

  • units considering environmental economics, game theory, and globalisation and development.

Econometrics, which involves the analysis of economic relationships using empirical data, builds on ideas taken from statistics, maths and economic theory and is a key part of all our degrees.
