    Programme Description

    BA/BSc Economics is distinctive for the depth of knowledge that it provides while allowing students flexibility and choice. It caters for a wide spread of student backgrounds, including those with no prior qualifications in economics.
    The first year combines a thorough introduction to all aspects of economics, including core economic principles, an introduction to mathematics, and an introduction to quantitative methods. Particularly well prepared students have the opportunity to take other optional courses. The second year is spent further improving skills while in the third year, students freely specialise in modules which they find most interesting, choosing from a large range of economics and econometrics options.
    Being one of the largest economics departments in the UK, the Department offers one of the largest portfolios of modules in the UK. Being one of the top-ranked research departments, most recently ranked as third equal in the UK, Essex also teaches to a deep level. Many of our best students are well prepared to go on to study at both Masters and PhD level. Those who prefer instead to enter employment are secure in the knowledge they have received one of the best undergraduate trainings available in economics.
