- Are you looking for an engaged and interactive learning and studying experience? - Do you want to develop an awareness of the contribution of the social sciences to understanding contemporary society? - Looking for a course that prepares you for employment or further study in relevant areas at MA/MSc/PhD level? - Would you like a chance to study abroad for a semester? The Economics pathway of the BA (Hons) Economic and Social Studies programme - or BA (Econ) for short - is a long-established and popular degree. Taught by experts from the largest Economics department in the UK, you'll benefit from their research-led teaching and have a wide range of course units to choose from depending on your interests. We offer: - Quantitative options (e.g. econometrics, operational research and mathematical economics); - Modules with a real-world focus e.g. management, business, development, micro and macroeconomics; - Course units from the broader social sciences (e.g. politics and sociology). You will learn about what drives economic systems and acquire the skills to model and quantify these systems - skills that are particularly relevant for professional economist, but are also keenly sought by a wide range of employers. Economics (L100), Economics & Politics (LL12), Economics & Sociology (LL13), Economics & Philosophy (LV15) and Development Studies (L900) all share a common first year. After your first year you can apply to switch to a different pathway. Please only apply for one of these courses to start with. **Special Features** In REF 2014 (Economics & Econometrics) Manchester Economics was ranked 7th out of 28 Economics departments in terms of research power (Grade Point Average multiplied by FTE).
