Our Economics courses focus specifically on the macroeconomic challenges of national, regional and global economies together with the microeconomic behaviour of people and businesses. An economics degree is an excellent foundation for your career as an economist but also offers scope to pursue a diverse range of high-earning opportunities. Scotland was the birthplace of modern economics but the profession is now truly international. Our staff hold qualifications from major universities around the world, publish research in leading international journals and regularly present work at international conferences. All three pathways focus on applied economics research so our modules are closely linked to contemporary economics, finance and business issues. This topicality enables you to choose a combination of subjects that fits your ambitions in a fast-changing world.
