Course programme

Year 1

The aim of the first year is to provide you with a firm foundation in the core subjects of your degree and an opportunity, through the choice of optional units, to broaden your field of study. Module choices in year one are dependent on whether you have studied economics at A level.

Students take optional modules each year. They can choose from Economics modules; modules from other departments and also from the Interdisciplinary modules. Note: the Economics department provides interdisciplinary modules but gives them two codes (e.g. UOSM2036 is the same as ECON1015). This is to allow our students to have access to the courses before they are offered to the whole University. UOSM modules can be taken in first, second or third year unless specified. For example, students could choose to take Social Enterprise in any year.

Everyone also takes a non-credit bearing course in Economics Skills and Employability each year to enable students to take full advantage of the opportunities on offer here.

Semester One

Students who do not have Economics A-level take Module Foundations of Microeconomics, those who have Economics A-level take Module Principles of Microeconomics.
