About

How can economic change in the past help us understand future sustainable development? The Economy and Society programme from Lund University is taught in English and aimed at recent high school graduates with a strong academic background, international career ambitions, and the drive to gain knowledge and skills in global context analysis, both in the public and private sector.

Overview

This Economy and Society programme from Lund University combines the two complementary fields of economic history and economics. It will appeal if you want training in the application of economic theory and quantitative methods to real problems.

You will examine important global issues, for example mechanisms driving economic growth and development over time at both national and regional levels, and the importance of education and human capital in economic change.

You will also learn about future sustainable development at the national, company and household levels. While the scope is global, the Scandinavian experience will be central when identifying lessons to be learned.

The BSc in Economy and Society offers:

  • A vast, yet focused curriculum in economic history and economics, combined with complementing electives in other social sciences
  • International perspectives from faculty members and students
  • Team-based projects enhancing cross-cultural learning 
  • Opportunities of internships in companies and/or exchange studies abroad at one of our partner universities.
  • Study and career advice

Career prospects

The skills you will develop by studying economy and society are attractive to a range of employers. Our graduates are likely to find work in a variety of industries, including politics and government, banking and finance, NGOs, charities and international development, as well as in the press and media.
