The course is designed to provide a foundation for a career as a professional economist or for study towards a PhD in economics. A strong emphasis is placed on the core areas of microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics. However, students also have the opportunity to choose optional modules in a wider range of areas, including financial economics, growth theory and environmental economics. Research skills are developed throughout the course, especially during the dissertation, which students will work on over the summer under the supervision of a member of staff.
