About Mathematics and Economics at University of Reading

Explore key aspects of mathematics and economics, and open the door to a range of career opportunities.

Mathematics and economics affect society at every level, from the inner workings of businesses to advances in new technology. This course will enable you to develop your skills as a mathematician whilst gaining a strong grounding in the conceptual underpinnings of economics. You will spend equal amounts of time studying each subject.

In mathematics you will study areas such as calculus, analysis, linear algebra, differential equations and numerical analysis. In the second year you will also take a skills module, which is designed to improve your transferable skills and enhance your employability.

You will be given plenty of support to help you get the most out of your studies, including small group problem-solving tutorials and materials to help you manage the transition to university-level mathematics. Additionally, you can get involved with the Department's Staff Student Forums and the Student Teaching and Learning Group, which enable you to have a direct input into the student experience.

In economics you will explore both macroeconomics and microeconomics. During the second year, you can choose to include either econometrics or economic theory. In addition to traditional lectures, you will take part in small group tutorials in which you can discuss and analyse theory and practice through case studies, group presentations and open debate. You can also apply what you learn to a placement and gain valuable real-world experience at the same time.

In the final year of the degree you can develop your knowledge by exploring areas of interest in greater depth. Half the modules in this year are optional and include subjects from both areas of the course such as business and financial forecasting, econometric methods and applied stochastic processes. During this year you will either complete an economics dissertation or a mathematical research project.
