Economics with Computing

Economics at Kent is ranked in the top ten in the UK. Our economists are internationally recognised for their research and are also exciting and innovative teachers who place a particular emphasis on making economics relevant to the real world. The School of Economics provides outstanding academic support. Each student has a dedicated academic adviser and we also run a peer mentoring scheme where experienced final-year students offer advice and support to new students. We are an international community with academic staff and students from many countries so you develop a global perspective on your subject. Our degree programme: In your first year, you learn how economists think and become familiar with the tools they use for analysing real economic problems. You can also study modules on the European economy in the 20th century, as well as strategy and games. Additionally, you study a number of modules on programming with the School of Computing. In your second and final years, you study macroeconomics, microeconomics and quantitative economics, along with further Computing modules. Optional Economics modules cover areas such as international finance, industrial and monetary economics, and the economics of money and banking. Our wide range of modules means you can tailor your degree to support your particular career ambitions; for example, you can choose modules that prepare you for life as a professional economist.
