Achieve a grounding in economic theory while learning different statistical approaches for the analysis of economic data.
This course is for those who want an understanding of the tools and key theories within economics and mathematics. You’ll study the core elements of economics, including microeconomic theory, macroeconomic theory and econometrics.
You will develop methodological and statistical tools for the analysis of complex data. Throughout your studies, you will be immersed in a wide variety of quantitative topics. This will enable you to develop and apply your advanced mathematical skills.
The first year has a mathematical focus to develop your theoretical skills. In Year 2 you’ll further your knowledge of economics from this foundation in the first year. In the final year, you will study advanced economic theory. A selection of optional units will enable you to tailor your studies to your personal career aspirations, interests, and strengths.
By the end of the course, you’ll be able to understand the complexities of global economic problems and data, and you will possess advanced quantitative skills and tools to create innovative solutions.
You’ll learn from academics with expertise across the breadth of economics. Their international collaborations and research activities feed into undergraduate teaching and contribute to your learning experience.
Our computer network enables you to access the up-to-the-minute data on economics. You will use the latest statistical and quantitative software to improve your ability to conduct analysis.
