This MSci programme is designed for students who are interested in making mathematics their major area of study but who would also like to obtain a knowledge and understanding of general economics and related subjects such as commerce and business. It offers an extra year of study on top of the Mathematics with Economics BSc, during which students have the opportunity to specialise further by taking more advanced courses, and undertaking a major project.
