This programme will give you a greater depth of understanding of real-world issues and allow you to study economic, social and geographical theories while learning how to apply them to contemporary policy issues. The programme responds to recent concerns from students and employers that standard economics programmes often contain narrow and uncritical content. By contrast, this programme will prepare you for jobs in the private or public sector that require clear and concise interpretations of policy issues and an understanding of the interface between economic, social, political and geographical change. The first two years will provide you with core interdisciplinary skills and a broad understanding of policy and context. In subsequent years, you can choose greater specialisation in economics or other disciplines as you wish.
