Economics is at the core of Global Sustainable Development (GSD). You’ll critically analyse economic models and theories of sustainable development through quantitative and qualitative approaches. Economics modules will provide you with an essential background in micro and macro economics, as well as methodologies for statistical analysis.
Meanwhile, your Economic Studies and Global Sustainable Development at the University of Warwick will empower you to consider the human and environmental implications of development. You’ll be posing challenging questions about climate change, biodiversity, gender equality, and other core components of sustainability. Put together, Economics and Global Sustainable Development encourages you to take a new perspective on our changing global economy.
As part of your course, you’ll complete certificates that will develop and demonstrate professional skills. You’ll also have the opportunity to spend part of your second year studying abroad at our partner institution, Monash University in Australia – home to the world-leading Monash Sustainability Institute.
The degree programmes have been developed to provide you with a set of skills that will enable you to compete for existing and emerging roles across a variety of professions. Your options are varied across a range of industries, from working in the United Nations to advising small businesses on issues that will affect the local community.
The nature of our GSD degrees is such that graduates can go into global sustainable development itself, or take their interdisciplinary skills, along with the specialist knowledge gained from subject-specific modules into a wide range of roles, such as:
