If you are studying single honours Economics, you will take one further course in an outside subject of your own choice or you could choose to take one (or both) of our 2nd year Economics option courses:

  • Issues in Global Economics

This course illustrates the usefulness of economic analysis in a global context.

  • Research Frontiers and Methods in Economics

This course aims to expose students to a wide range of topics that can be studied through the lenses of Economics, and to the research carried out at the School of Economics, and to develop students' essay-writing skills in preparation for future years of study.
