Course Introduction

**Why choose this course?**

This course offers more than just mainstream economics. You will study both traditional and alternative approaches to economics, including controversial theories informed by the financial crisis of 2008. This will help you develop a better understanding of the real world and a more critical approach to economics. The Economics BSc(Hons) has a specific focus on studying issues that affect economic policy. You will be encouraged to consider issues that affect your daily life, like:

- What effect do professional sports teams have on the local economy?

- Should entry to museums and galleries be free?

- What is the risk that government spending could crowd out investment by private firms?

Throughout the degree you will develop core skills valued by employers. For example, the Working as an Economist module develops your researching, writing and presenting skills. Our graduates work in a range of occupations, such as economists in the City of London and in management positions at multinational companies like Deloitte, HSBC, KPMG and PwC.

This course enables you to take a sandwich year. This takes place between Year 2 and 3 of the course.
