Degree Overview

The student-led Geography and Environmental Society also has a programme of activities to help students become part of our community.

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.
