Modern economics is highly mathematical, and graduates of our Mathematics with Economics BSc(Hons) gain a thorough understanding of both disciplines to develop a skillset valued by employers.
Developed in collaboration with industry experts, this accredited course has a focus on employability. You will work individually and in teams in a supportive environment, learning to communicate complex ideas and conclusions effectively to a wide range of audiences.
An integrated blend of maths and economics, two-thirds of the course concentrates on developing your mathematical abilities. A third is taught by specialists in the university’s Business School, focusing on economics with elements of business and finance.
Using sophisticated mathematical and statistical software such as Maple, R and SAS, you will develop core and advanced mathematical skills. You will also have the opportunity of a professional placement to build your experience and make industry connections.
In your first year of study you will be introduced to various aspects of mathematics, statistics and economics. Your second year gives you the opportunity to build on the skills and knowledge you have acquired in your first year. After your second year, you have the option of spending one year in industry. In your final year you will specialise in the areas of the course that interest you the most and undertake an individual project.
