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 (eg econometrics, operational research and mathematical economics); Modules with a real-world focus eg management, business, development, micro and macroeconomics; Course units from the broader social sciences (eg 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.
