There are 3 distinct links between Economics and Humanities degree programmes:

  1. BScEcon Joint Honours Economics and Politics (LL12);
  2. BA Joint Honours Economics: Economics and History VL11, Economics and Philosophy VL51, Economics and French RL11, Economics and German RL21, Economics and Italian RL31, Economics and Spanish LR14;
  3. Humanities degree programme students who wish to pick up Economics modules as an additional subject (BA students) or additional options (BScEcon students).

1. BScEcon Economics and Politics (LL12)
Students undertake three compulsory 20 credit modules in Year 1:

  • BS1501 (Applied Statistics and Mathematics in Economics and Business)
  • BS1551 (Microeconomics)
  • BS1652 (Macroeconomics)

2 & 3. BA Joint Honours Economics students and BA students taking Economics as an additional subject must take two compulsory 20 credit modules in Year 1:

  • BS1551 (Microeconomics)
  • BS1652 (Macroeconomics)

Any BScEcon Honours students who are taking fewer than 120 credits in their Honours subject(s) can sign up to take additional credits in Economics. These BScEcon students can choose from the following modules in Economics:

  • BS1501 (Applied Statistics and Mathematics in Economics and Business)
  • BS1547 (Introduction to Economics)
  • BS1545 (Contemporary Economic Issues)
  • BS1546 (Economic History)
  • BS1551 (Microeconomics)
  • BS1652 (Macroeconomics)

All modules are 20 credits and with the exceptions of BS1551 and BS1652 are taught across both the Autumn and Spring Semester. There are, however, certain restrictions on student choice.

  1. BScEcon students wishing to study one double module in economic theory should take BS1547 (Introduction to Economics).
  2. i.        Those wishing for a fuller grounding in economic theory should take both BS1551 (Microeconomics) and BS1652 (Macroeconomics) - note that these two modules must be taken as a pair, and cannot be taken in conjunction with BS1547 (Introduction to Economics).
  3. Students do not have to take any economic theory modules in order to take other economics modules, but advice as to the suitability of these other modules should be obtained from Dr Kevin Stagg
  4. Students who have not currently enrolled for Joint Honours Economics, but wish to keep this option open for Year Two and Final Year, should take, as a minimum, both BS1551 and BS1652 in Year One.


There will be an introductory talk designed for students undertaking a Joint Honours degree with ECONOMICS with Dr Kevin Stagg in ROOM 0.01, John Percival Building, at 1.15pm ON WEDNESDAY 24 SEPTEMBER 2014.
