Economics

The programme will equip you with a thorough grounding in the theory, concepts, principles and techniques of the core subject areas of the discipline: macroeconomics, microeconomics and quantitative analysis. It aims to provide you with knowledge of the workings of the UK economy and the ability to use that knowledge in a range of contexts. We will introduce you to the breadth and depth of economic analysis and offer you the opportunity to acquire knowledge and technique across a number of specialised areas. These include industrial economics, economic history, labour economics and international economics. Economics is a numerate and increasingly mathematical subject and, consistent with other universities, some modules will have a quantitative element while others will be of a highly mathematical nature. An Economics degree at Cardiff University provides you with a thorough understanding of economic analysis and aims to stimulate you to value this analysis in understanding economic problems and a wider range of social and political issues. Studying Economics provides a rigorous training that can be a useful foundation for future careers. Distinctive features The distinctive features of the Economics Programme include: •The opportunity to specialise in economic analysis through all three years of study and therefore to build up considerable knowledge and skills in the discipline; •The intellectual challenge derived from exposure to recent developments in economic theory; •The development of substantial quantitative and empirical research skills; •The chance to proceed to postgraduate study in economics at the UK’s premier Universities; •The possibility of moving into careers in the government economic service and major economic consultancies
