The Economics Department at Warwick provides an outstanding training in economics, which is both intellectual and professional, applying economic modelling to both traditional and atypical spheres of analysis.
Economics offers an undergraduate education which is distinctive in many ways. The Department is very proud of its global outlook, which informs the subject matter of much of its teaching and it is very much focused on research-led teaching. The department has always been very interdisciplinary, undertaking both research and teaching across multiple disciplines, thus providing diverse insights into a range of topics.
Why study the Economics pathway?
On a Liberal Arts pathway in Economics, you will receive lectures from world-leading researchers and will be able to choose modules in a variety of fields, including development economics, behavioural economics, money and banking, political economy, trade and game theory.
Studying Economics offers the opportunity to consider the big social questions introduced in Liberal Arts from a different perspective. For example, using mathematical and statistical modelling, you will be able to consider issues concerning equality, sustainability and the environment, housing allocation and immigration. Economics is exceptionally diverse, and you will be encouraged to apply your knowledge in different areas to critically analyse and simplify economic problems.
Like Liberal Arts, the Economics Department prioritises your development as an undergraduate researcher, offering excellent skills training and opportunities to present your work.
