Program Overview

We have a strong track record of securing placements with public sector employers like the Treasury, Home Office, and Office of National Statistics; with financial institutions such as Lloyds Bank; and in businesses, charities and international organisations.

Why study economics?

  • From environmental sustainability to financial stability, and from wages to wealth, economic forces affect every aspect of our lives.
  • Studying BA(Hons) Economics will give you a solid understanding of how and why, and the skills needed to analyse issues and effect change across a wide range of areas, including the public sector, think tanks, financial institutions and charities.

Why UWE Bristol?

  • Along with this economics degree we also offer BA(Hons) Economics. On both, you'll apply the latest economic theories to real and relevant challenges, develop critical thinking and debate ideas from a range of perspectives.
  • The BSc course gives you the chance to develop your technical skills to a more advanced level and requires A level mathematics. The BA degree provides a rigorous and accessible economics training to those with less mathematical experience.
  • On both pathways, you'll be taught by a passionate and enthusiastic team of research-active staff with a growing reputation for being at the cutting edge of new ideas in economics.
  • Learn to analyse a wide range of economic issues, such as where does wealth come from? Is our way of life sustainable? Is global trade a force for good? How does the banking and financial system affect our lives? Will robots take people's jobs? Is inequality getting worse and does it matter?
  • UWE Bristol takes a unique pluralist approach to teaching economics. As well as using traditional textbooks, you'll draw on ideas from a range of viewpoints and disciplines, placing economics in its broader social and political context.
  • With an emphasis on developing key skills and critical thinking while gaining real-world experience, you'll get regular access to industry and policy-making through placements, field trips and guest lectures.

Where can it take me?

  •  As a graduate with a degree that's rooted in realism and application, you'll be highly attractive to employers.
  • You could pursue a career in government, banking and finance, retail, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) or charities.
