The Economics with History Bachelors degree programme has been designed with the premise that a proper understanding of economics requires historical perspective and that knowledge in both fields enables students to develop a fuller appreciation of the forces of economic change.
Economics with History balances the ‘universalist’ assumptions of the economist with the ‘particularist’ approach of the historian and helps those who have had little previous acquaintance with economics to understand economic theories through the study of historical examples.
The BSc degree employs a variety of teaching methods in different courses. Lectures and small group tutorials form the backbone of the teaching. Personal contact with members of the academic staff is considered to be essential if each student’s personal enthusiasm for their studies is to be stimulated.
Core topics of study in the Economics with History Bachelors degree programme include:
Economics with History students will be better able to use economic theory and to assess economic policy in ways that take into consideration the differing time paths of legal, political and cultural inheritance. A dissertation on an approved topic may be substituted for a written examination in one second-year elective with the approval of the lecturer concerned.
The degree will be of particular interest to those wishing to pursue careers in public policy, international agencies, journalism or education.
Students wishing to study the Economics with History Bachelors degree programme must meet the following criteria:
- 300 UCAS points,
- English: IELTS of 6.0 + TOEFL of 213.
