The Economics Studies (Hons) course from University of Dundee focus specifically on the macroeconomic challenges of national, regional and global economies together with the microeconomic behaviour of people and businesses. .
An economics degree is an excellent foundation for your career as an economist but also offers scope to pursue a diverse range of high-earning opportunities.
MA (Hons) and BSc (Hons) differ in the subjects you will study in addition to economics in your first two years. Choose an MA if your interests and background lie mainly in the arts and social sciences or a BSc if you lean more towards mathematics, computing and the physical sciences.The first two years of this degree are common to all economics MA or BSc degrees so you will have the option to switch between the three economics degree pathways during this time, either as single or joint Honours.
Some of our graduates are working as professional economists; others with the UK Government Economic Service or Scottish Government. Others are in finance or general management, working for banking multinationals, major consultancies and marketing agencies.
At Dundee you’ll be networking with other students from around the world – opening up global possibilities – and be invited to sessions where you can talk to employers about career opportunities.
