Economics is a discipline that encompasses individual, firm and country-level interactions that drive our integrated economic systems.

Economics at Newcastle

Established in the early 1900s our vibrant department consists of over 30 academics researching across all main applied and theoretical areas of modern micro-, macro- and quantitative economics. We are currently headed by the Sir David Dale Chair of Economics, Professor John Sessions.

Our faculty is shaping current economic debates by engaging with policymakers and practitioners. Our research encompasses worldwide collaborations and is being published in top journals.
