  • Great university which is only getting better. Good student support and degree quality.
    |
  • Very friendly students and staff, and whilst the campus is made of ugly concrete, it has it's own beauty.
    |
  • I'm so glad I chose UEA and totally love the campus. Many don't like the architecture, but I like it because it contrasts with the green areas. I've loved to be taught Economics in award winning buildings.

Course programme

This three year course provides a wide range of integrated contemporary modules, enabling you to explore the diverse area of economics. You will have a varied choice of modules throughout the degree programme enabling you to direct your own learning.

Year 1

During your first year of study you will engage with key concepts of macroeconomics and microeconomics in the year-long modules ‘Introductory Macroeconomics’ and ‘Introductory Microeconomics’. You will also take modules such as ‘Introductory Mathematics for Economists’ and ‘Introductory Statistics for Economists’, which introduce you to basic economic modelling and statistical techniques.

You will have the opportunity to select modules from the School of Economics, or those offered within Political, Social and International Studies, Philosophy, and Language and Communication Studies.

Year 2

During your second year you will have the opportunity to tailor your degree programme according to your own interests, studying areas which you may find particularly relevant for your future career or further studies.

You will continue to develop your understanding of macro and microeconomics as well as skills in the collection and analysis of data. In ‘Introductory Econometrics’ you will build your statistical skills, which you will apply in the form of a practical project designed to answer a research question in the module ‘Econometrics Research Project’. This module is also designed to enhance the employability of our graduates.

Optional second-year modules cover areas including international trade, the European economy, strategy, behavioural economics, economic thought and mathematical economics.

Year 3

In your final year you will have an even broader range of optional modules to choose from, as you will be encouraged to pursue a curriculum of economic disciplines that match your own interests. Your final year provides the opportunity to further your study of macroeconomics, microeconomics and econometrics.

You will also choose further optional modules in economics and finance, which cover areas such as labour, public policy, corporate finance, financial markets, derivatives, risk management, history of economic thought, economics and business of sport, alternative investments, and environmental economics.

You will also have the option to take a dissertation during your final year.
