This Joint Honours in Science degree gives you the opportunity to combine your dual interests in economics and mathematics, providing you with a thorough insight into both topics, and allowing you to make connections between the two.
In economics you will explore economic topics relating to Britain, Europe and the rest of the world, including:
In mathematics you will develop a thorough grounding in topics and techniques such as:
Topics are closely linked to our research expertise and allow you to work at the cutting edge of the discipline, whilst optional modules allow you to conduct research on a topic of your choice, or focus on career development.
This degree is part of our Joint Honours in Science scheme. By studying two subjects, you develop a broad range of expertise and a set of skills that spans two specialist areas, preparing you for a wide range of careers.
Dividing your study equally between your two subject areas, you select from the same range of topics as Single Honours students and achieve the same high academic standard, but you cover fewer topics in each subject.
The challenge of mastering two subjects produces graduates who are well-prepared for the multidisciplinary challenges of the real-world, developing your skills in time management, organisation and self-motivation that employers value.
You will receive careers support as part of your degree, including a bespoke career development module personally tailored to your professional development, and excellent support from the University’s award-winning Careers Service.
Our degrees are taught through a combination of lectures, problem classes, tutorials, practical computer classes, computer-based assessments, data collection and analysis, and drop-in sessions.
We assess your performance in each module through a combination of assignments and end-of-semester examinations. Many of our assignments take place online and are aimed at helping you with key material. Teaching and assessment methods may vary from module to module; more information can be found in our individual module listings.
