About

The Economic Studies (Hons) course from University of Dundee focuses on the macroeconomic challenges of national, regional, and global economies with the microeconomics behaviour of people and businesses

Overview

At the University of Dundee here are two four-year Economics courses: a BSc and an MA. The main differences between these are at Levels 1 and 2.

Choose the Economic Studies (Hons) course from University of Dundee if your interests lean more towards management, mathematics, computing and the physical science based subjects.

Economists examine how societies attempt to make the best use of their scarce resources, so that they can advise governments, individuals, and companies on how to improve decisions and outcomes.

Traditionally economists advise on investment, inflation, interest rates, and production. Increasingly however, economics takes a wider focus with many economists examining climate change, inequality, and improving healthcare.

Teaching

In Levels 1 and 2 teaching is initially through a combination of lectures and tutorials. These continue in Levels 3 and 4, supplemented by workshops and statistics sessions.

You will learn to study independently to broaden and deepen your understanding of the issues covered in the teaching.

There are industry guest lectures which you are encouraged to attend.
