Program description

BSc (Hons) Economics with Econometrics

Study economics for a constantly changing world. This degree allows you to specialise in economic statistics, while also exploring key areas of modern economy and society.

At Goldsmiths we encourage you to face the new and evolving challenges of economics today by thinking outside the box and marrying innovation with tradition. This degree allows you to investigate economics from different theoretical and empirical perspectives, developing an understanding of the social and business context of economics today.

Our BSc Economics with Econometrics provides you with an excellent grounding in economic theory with a further specialisation in economic statistics. This means you will not only study advanced modules in econometrics and economic mathematics, but you will also investigate broader empirical questions that explore the different uses of data within economics and the social sciences.

In the third year module 'From National Statistics to Big Data' we explore the latest research findings in the uses of new data sets, not only as utilized by economists, but also by other social scientists. This will help you gain cutting edge knowledge about how emerging technologies influence the statistical work that economists do.

London is the financial hub of the UK, and you will have access to today’s business leaders, economists and policy practitioners, through both events taking place at the Institute of Management Studies and the Political Economy Research Centre.
