What if you could combine Economic Studies and Global Sustainable Development?

The BASc in Economic Studies and Global Sustainable Development is unique to Warwick. It is a joint course that allows you to combine study of the topical subject of Global Sustainable Development (GSD), in depth at undergraduate level, with a study of a subject that you are passionate about, Economics.

Your passion for Economics will be applied to answering the Big Questions of our time. You will benefit from learning at an institution which has a world-wide reputation for its expertise in Economics and a unique cross-institutional approach to examining issues of global sustainable development; evidenced by the University's ten interdisciplinary Global Research Priorities which are all related to different aspects of GSD.
