It aims to provide you with knowledge of the workings of the UK economy and the ability to use that knowledge in a range of contexts.

We will introduce you to the breadth and depth of economic analysis and offer you the opportunity to acquire knowledge and technique across a number of specialised areas. These include industrial economics, economic history, labour economics and international economics.
