Program description

Economics and Psychology at Aberdeen is a great subject combination which gives you thorough grounding in the global economy and the many factors that influence wealth from a social and financial perspective. This programme offers an in-depth examination of the influence of psychology and how we as humans think and behave. You will gain a set of specialist and transferable skills to open up career options across the spectrum of sectors and roles involving ‘people’.

In Economics, you will explore the microeconomics of business and society, macroeconomics of the world economy and economic problems in political, social and historical contexts, with a strong emphasis on applied learning. You will thrive in the dynamic, international environment of our Business School of 45 nationalities and be taught by experts including leading petroleum economist and government adviser Professor Alex Kemp and our health economists whose work influences Scottish and UK policy decisions on public health.

People lie at the heart of any economy and Psychology examines how we think and how we behave, increasing our understanding and explanation of human behaviour and experience, and how these change and develop throughout our lives.

You will gain all the advantages of our long tradition and special strength in Psychology, for which the most recent national assessment of university research placed Aberdeen as third top in the UK, with internationally known researchers leading studies including industrial and workplace psychology of great relevance to this subject combination. You will graduate with skills appealing especially to employers in psychology-related fields, including human resources, social work, counselling and teaching and business areas benefiting from an understanding of the human mind and behaviour including marketing and advertising.
