Economics

Learn how the economy works and how to improve it with our flagship degree programme. This course is your chance to question everything and challenge yourself to not just analyse the ideas of others, but to come up with and defend your own theories too. You will explore all areas of the economy, from microeconomic and macroeconomic perspectives. You will also learn quantitative methods, economic modeling techniques, and how to collect and analyse data. Most importantly, you will discover what really excites you about economics, and you’ll be able to take your studies in the direction you choose. Economics touches many other subjects, so alongside your core subjects you’ll also be able to enhance your studies with classes from UEA’s School of Politics, Philosophy, Language and Communication Studies. In this way you can build your degree to suit your developing interests and ambitions and ensure you leave UEA with a degree that matches your goals. **Course Structure** In this three-year course you’ll explore the diversity of economics and direct your own learning through a varied choice of modules. **Year 1** In your first year, you’ll get to grips with the key concepts of macroeconomics and microeconomics in the year-long modules ‘Introductory Macroeconomics’ and ‘Introductory Microeconomics’. You will also take the modules ‘Introductory Mathematics for Economists’ and ‘Introductory Statistics for Economists’, which introduce you to basic economic modelling and statistical techniques. You will also have the opportunity to select modules from the School of Economics, as well as selected modules from within the School of Politics, Philosophy, Language and Communication Studies. **Year 2** Your second year gives you the opportunity to tailor your degree programme according to your own interests, studying areas that you find particularly relevant for your future career or further studies. Whether you’re fascinated by corporate finance, international trade, the European economy, strategy, behavioural economics, economic thought or mathematical economics – you’ll find modules to suit you. You’ll also continue to develop your understanding of macro and microeconomics, whilst gaining skills in the collection and analysis of data. In ‘Introductory Econometrics’ you will build your statistical skills. In the module ‘Econometrics Research Project’ you’ll then apply those skills with a practical project addressing a research question. This module is also designed to boost your employability even further. **Year 3** Your final year brings with it an even wider range of optional modules – and we will encourage you to follow your own interests. You will also have the opportunity to continue your study of macroeconomics, microeconomics and econometrics. And you’ll choose further optional modules in economics and finance – covering areas such as industrial organisation, labour, public policy, financial markets, derivatives, risk management, history of economic thought, economics and business of sport, alternative investments, and environmental economics. You will also have the option to take a dissertation during your final year. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
