The Economics pathway of the BA (Hons) Economic and Social Studies programme - or BA (Econ) for short - is a long-established and popular degree.
Taught by experts from the largest Economics department in the UK, you'll benefit from their research-led teaching and have a wide range of course units to choose from depending on your interests. We offer:
- Quantitative options (eg econometrics, operational research and mathematical economics);
- Modules with a real-world focus eg management, business, development, micro and macroeconomics;
- Course units from the broader social sciences (eg politics and sociology).
You will learn about what drives economic systems and acquire the skills to model and quantify these systems - skills that are particularly relevant for professional economist, but are also keenly sought by a wide range of employers.
Economics (L100), Economics & Politics (LL12), Economics & Sociology (LL13), Economics & Philosophy (LV15)
and Development Studies (L900) all share a common first year. After your first year you can apply to switch to a different pathway.
Please only apply for one of these courses to start with.
