In the first year, you will study course units in Principles of Economics and Quantitative Methods, participate in the Economics Workshop and study another elective course unit. The second year is more technical and covers Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Quantitative Methods and an elective course unit. Your final year will be made up entirely of elective course units with an optional dissertation.
Throughout the course, you will:
appreciate and apply the core theories of micro and macroeconomics
understand and apply mathematical and statistical techniques to analyse and solve economic problems
gain experience in logical and philosophical reasoning.
All undergraduate degree courses at Royal Holloway are based on the course unit system. This system provides an effective and flexible approach to study, while ensuring that our degrees have a coherent and developmental structure.
