Comments about BA Economics and Geography - At the institution - Sheffield - South Yorkshire

  • Objectives
    Our degree courses equip you with a solid grounding in modern economic theory, incorporating the issues underlying current debates on economic policy and the quantitative and analytical skills essential for economists. You will learn a way of thinking that can be applied to challenges in many areas of contemporary concern. Geographers study a range of social issues and problems in which space and location are key elements. These range from the global (eg. the globalisation of the economy), to the local (eg. individual spatial decision-making) and span both the Environmental and Social Sciences.
