Programme profile

Economic history is concerned with how economic change in the past can help us understand the future. It uses concepts and theories from the social sciences to study the development of different economies and understand them in their social, political and cultural contexts. It combines the skills of the economist and the historian, the statistician and the sociologist. Meanwhile, economics tackles a broad range of problems, from barriers to economic development to international financial crises.

This programme combines the two complementary fields of economic history and economics. It will appeal if you want training in the application of economic theory and quantitative methods to real problems.

You will examine important global issues, for example mechanisms driving economic growth and development over time at both national and regional levels, and the importance of education and human capital in economic change.

You will also learn about future sustainable development at the national, corporate and household levels.
