Comments about BSc Economics and Economic History - At the institution - Coventry - West Midlands

  • Objectives
    This is designed for economists with a keen interest in history, and historians willing to make a commitment to economics. It combines economic analysis with historical knowledge to advance understanding of such issues as Britain’s position in Europe and the determinants of economic growth; the conditions for exchange rate stability and successful European integration; the causes of economic fluctuations and unemployment; the economics of state socialism and transition. The degree aims to combine an understanding of economic concepts with a grasp of historical sources with which the University Library is very well stocked.
