Course Description

Offering you the flexibility to tailor your module choice to your interests, this course provides a solid grounding in a wide range of techniques and skills sought after by employers.

Macroeconomics, microeconomics, mathematics and statistics form the core of the degree. The school offers a wide range of optional modules covering a diverse set of economics topics. You will also have the flexibility to select modules offered by other schools and departments across the University.
The mathematical and statistical modules in year one are available as either econometrics or quantitative economics. The former is available only to those with A level maths or equivalent, while the latter is available to everyone. These pathways continue in the second year, however you may switch from econometrics to quantitative economics in year two.

By the end of your course, you will have a thorough understanding of economic theory and how it is applied to the real world. You will also be familiar with the key analytical techniques that economists use in practice. 

Year one 

Providing you with a solid grounding in introductory economic theory and mathematics/statistics, your first year of study will focus on the relevance of such methods to the study of economic questions of cultural, political and social importance.

You will explore current issues and perspectives and will typically take a year-long study skills module to ensure that your transition to university study is smooth. We also provide a dedicated module that focuses on career skills and employability, including guidance on preparing your CV, interview techniques and applying for internships.

Year two 

You will develop your analytical skills and knowledge of the core disciplines of economics and quantitative methods, as well as the major sub-disciplines of economics. As in year one, you will be able to choose either the econometric theory or quantitative economics (applied econometrics) pathway.

You can also apply to spend a semester of your second year studying abroad, taking similar modules to your counterparts back in Nottingham or expanding your knowledge through other options. 

Year three 

In your final year you will examine the major themes in economics at an advanced level and build on the topics covered in previous years. You will select modules that interest you from a wide range of specialist options that reflect our academics' research expertise in both theoretical and applied aspects of the discipline.

Under the guidance of your tutor, you'll also undertake a year-long dissertation on a topic of your choice and will gain experience of the research process.
