Dundee City Campus

This course looks at 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.

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 they also take a wider focus with many economists examining climate change, inequality, and improving healthcare.

We have two Economics courses: a BSc and an MA. The main differences between these are at Levels 1 and 2.

The MA option is for you if you are looking for even greater flexibility and if you have a strong interest in the arts and social science subjects. Along with your compulsory modules you can study across a broad range including History, English, Geography, Politics, or Psychology.
