Our BA Economics concentrates on the fundamental theories and techniques to help you build a successful career in this competitive field. Taking in historic and current, domestic and international perspectives, you’ll develop an in-depth understanding of the subject at all levels.

Economics with French

We understand the value of expanding your study experience beyond a single subject or geography. Which is why, with our BA Economics with French, we’re focused on providing multiple perspectives and a truly international experience. Your studies will follow a similar pattern to the BA Economics, except that you take compulsory modules in French in your first, second and fourth years. In your third year you’ll study at a university in Aix-en-Provence through the SOCRATES/ERASMUS programme while continuing to study Economics.

Economics with Management

Our BA Economics with Management expands on the core Economics degree. Alongside the fundamental theories and techniques of Economics, you’ll study selected modules in finance, business, accounting and management. Tailoring your degree in this way will help give you the knowledge and skills to support a career in your particular area of interest.

Economics and Politics

Economics and politics are closely linked throughout society. Our BA Economics and Politics reflects this connection, exploring multiple perspectives while also helping you develop your own viewpoint.

Throughout your course you’ll have the opportunity to cover diverse topics such as world economy, macro and microeconomics, corporate finance, international relations and development economics. At each stage you can adjust the balance of subjects to broaden your experience or focus in on your major area of interest.

Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE)

Our BA Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) is a prestigious joint honours degree offering you the opportunity to explore three subjects – their connections, influences and impact. You’ll gain an understanding of how and why they’ve been so inextricably linked historically, and the ways in which they’ve developed and diverged over the course of the last two centuries, both in content and in method.
