We offer a wide range of modules across the economics discipline, with particular strength in the areas of applied economics and monetary and financial economics.

The Economics degree programmes are flexible and enable you to follow a number of modules in other business disciplines and to pursue joint degrees with the humanities subjects.

Teaching is research-led and is delivered by world-renowned faculty who bring with them considerable practical experience to complement their academic expertise.

“I joined the course as a mature student with little understanding of economics. I found a really welcoming environment from the staff and made so many great memories with friends who I still see today. A key takeaway from the degree was my experience working with friends to build the Economics Society.”
