  • Course description
    Course content for year 1
    BA (Hons) Economics & Social Studies begins with a foundation first year in which you will take course units in economics, politics and a social science, along with further courses in mathematics, statistics and computing. Because additional courses are available beyond the prescribed minimum you can begin to specialise your knowledge as early as the first semester or keep your options open until the end of the year. The main aim of this broad-based first year is to enable you to make more informed choices about your areas of specialisation than would have been possible had you been committed to a particular discipline from the start.

    Course content for year 2
    In your second year you can adopt one of two strategies. The first is to specialise in a particular area of interest by taking most or all of your course units in one subject area (eg Economics, Sociology or Finance). The other is to pursue joint specialisation in two subject areas (eg by studying courses from Sociology as well as from Development Studies).

    Course content for year 3
    By your final year you will either have specialised in one area of study or you will have combined two. In principle, over fifty possible combinations of BA (Econ) are available. Some of these are traditionally very popular (eg Accounting and Finance, Economics and Government) whereas some subject areas have rarely, if ever, been combined (Finance and Social Anthropology for instance).

    Career opportunities
    BA(Hons) Economics & Social Studies graduates will have acquired transferable skills in data collection, data processing, data analysis and evaluation, quantitative technologies, verbal & written communication techniques and time management.

    Recent BA(Econ) graduates have found a wide range of jobs in accountancy, management, the financial sector, banking, business consultancy, the civil service, journalism, film making, NHS management, voluntary and community based organisations, social work, the police, international relief organisations and teaching.
