Course Overview

Economics can be studied as a Single or Combined Honours programme and can be studied alongside subjects such as Mathematics, Politics or Sociology. You’ll learn techniques for addressing real world problems and policy-related issues, and explore the behaviour and performance of households, businesses and governments. In considering issues of social importance and policy relevance, and examining real world phenomena, you’ll combine theoretical analysis with up-to-date knowledge about current issues. You’ll use professional software tools to analyse and interpret real economic data and to confidently present complex findings to a range of audiences.

What will this mean for my future?

An Economics degree from Keele will open up a range of opportunities in business and government. Graduates might take up careers as economists, perhaps in the City or with the prestigious Government Economic Service. They might work in commerce and industry, in education or in local government. With or without further study, you might go into banking, insurance, accounting, management consultancy, or the NHS, for example. You might work as an investment analyst, statistician or financial adviser.

This undergraduate degree will also prepare you for postgraduate studies in economics or finance or related areas.
