This course recognises the importance of statistical analysis in these two core disciplines and emphasises the benefit of studying econometrics - the application of statistical methods to data to estimate economic models.

The first two years of the degree are focused on building your mathematical and analytical abilities and include mandatory units in micro- and macroeconomics, mathematics, statistics and econometrics, and the fundamentals of accounting and finance. These units provide a strong foundation which you can build upon in the final year.

During your final year, you will have the opportunity to carry out research through an applied economics dissertation, alongside a wide range of optional units from within the School of Economics, as well as the University of Bristol Business School.

Previously, economics optional units have included: Economics of Developing Countries, Behavioural Economics, and Data Science. Finance optional units have included: Financial Crises, International Finance, and Portfolio Management.
