About BSc Economics and Mathematics

Our Economics and Mathematics degree allows you to continue studying mathematics at a high level while also studying economics using mathematical tools.

If you are more interested in using mathematics in an applied way to understand the real-world use of statistics in economics, you might like to consider our degree in Economics and Econometrics.
