Economics and Mathematics (Including Placement Year)

BSc Economics and Mathematics is based in our Department of Economics, which is ranked among the top 150 departments on the planet according to the QS World University Rankings (2017). Mathematics develops strong problem solving skills that complement the economics side of your course and allow you to understand the more complex elements of the subject. You investigate topics in mathematics and mathematical applications in economics, and topics ranging from microeconomics, macroeconomics, probability and applied statistics, finance and Big Data and discrete mathematics, languages and semigroup theory. You are taught by some of the most prominent economists in the field, many of whom hold MBEs. Meanwhile, our mathematics staff are award-winning teachers, many of whom have won national or regional awards for lecturing, and many of them are qualified and accredited teachers – something which is very rare at a university. On the four year version of our course, you have the option to spend your third year on a placement with an external organisation.
