BSc Mathematics and Economics

Dream of a career where you can apply your maths skills to solve real-world economic problems? This degree offers the perfect preparation.



Mathematics and economics are inextricably linked in modern society. This BSc Mathematics and Economics allows you to study both topics in depth – dedicating roughly the same amount of time to each subject.

The programme is carefully structured to focus on mathematical and statistical topics that are highly relevant to economics and finance. You’ll dive into key mathematical methods, such as algebra and calculus, and statistical theory. In parallel, you’ll study how these principles are applied in macroeconomics, microeconomics and mathematical economics.

This degree is taught jointly with our world-class Department of Economics. There is a strong focus on building your quantitative knowledge – increasingly important for a successful career in finance, accounting and other sectors.

This degree will be of interest to all mathematically or scientifically minded students, regardless of whether you’ve studied economics previously.
