Econometrics is the application of statistical methods to data to estimate economic models. It is used by economists to test theories and to analyse the impacts of policies and events on the health of the economy. This course combines the study of economics and econometrics with a wide range of optional units.

Econometrics is a vital tool for economists because, unlike natural sciences where controlled experiments are used to determine the effect of one thing on another, it is impossible to hold the economy constant while tinkering with a single variable. Econometrics provides the scientific means to overcome the issue using empirical observations.

Alongside additional mandatory modules in econometrics and carrying out research in the applied economics dissertation, you will be able to select from a wide range of optional modules from within the School of Economics, the University of Bristol Business School and other parts of the University during your degree, allowing you to select units from the areas of economics that most interest you. Previous economics options have included: Behavioural Economics; Environmental Economics; Data Science; Current Economic Problems.
