Program overview

conomics is the study of how people interact with others and their surroundings, and here at Stirling we look at Economics in a rich and varied way: from artificial intelligence in the labour market to addressing climate change, and from behavioural economic insights in decision making to tackling global poverty and inequality. An Economics degree from Stirling empowers you with sharp analytical tools, from experts in their field, with an ever-present emphasis on intellectual curiosity. You can study Economics as a four-year single honours degree or take it in conjunction with one of eight other subjects to earn a combined honours degree. Using the interactive CORE teaching approach, the first four semesters of your studies will introduce you to micro- and macro-economics, before you move on to gain a deeper understanding of both subjects and expand your knowledge of economics and business. Modules in semesters 5-8 are designed to develop your knowledge and understanding of the central methods of economic analysis and major policy issues, in addition to a dedicated module in behavioural economics. You’ll also write a dissertation in your final year, as well as choosing from elective modules that can give you a specialist understanding of areas such as Environmental and Financial Economics, and Industrial Organisation.
