Economics with Creative Writing BSc
The Economics with Creative Writing BSc will help you develop wide-ranging skills, from the mathematical to the creative. A degree for polymaths, you will study the economic and political forces that impact our lives, while also learning to develop your writing skills - allowing you to communicate your economic knowledge effectively. You will have the chance to develop your analytical skills and to apply them to a huge variety of subjects, from analysing poetry, scripts, fiction and nonfiction, to analysing quantitative data and human behaviours.
The Economics with Creative Writing degree aims to prepare students to be educated observers of economic and socio-political processes. The combination of technical and analytical Economics training together with the study of Creative Writing gives students the ability to produce sophisticated economic thoughts and communicate them effectively and appropriately for different audiences.
