This degree develops analytical and quantitative skills applicable to a wide range of careers in economics and beyond.

We teach economics in a technically rigorous way. Econometrics - the application of statistical methods to data to estimate economic models - is a central component of the programme. During the first two years, mandatory units in macro and micro-economics, mathematics, statistics and econometrics provide you with a strong foundation, which you build upon in the final year.

You will complement this with a wide range of optional modules from within the School of Economics, the University of Bristol Business School and other parts of the University. The number of options increases as you progress through the degree, allowing you to select units from the areas of economics that most interest you.

In the final year, all students have the opportunity to carry out research through an applied economics dissertation. You will also choose from a wide range of optional units; in recent years these have included Behavioural Economics, Data Science, Corporate Finance, Development Economics, Environmental Economics, International Economics and Operations Management.

The Study Abroad course offers you the opportunity to extend your degree to four years, spending your third year studying economics in English at a university in Europe or farther afield. This course allows you to combine the challenging, broad academic content of our economics degree with an overseas dimension that reflects the international nature of the economy. This course combines the challenging, broad academic content of our economics degree with an overseas dimension that gives you a true awareness of a different culture and reflects the international nature of the economy.
