Economics teaches us how the economy functions, how people make decisions, why an economic crisis occurs and what the different solutions are. Economics at Essex is not only about stocks, shares and financial markets; it is concerned with the material wellbeing of human societies. Essex’s Economics offers a thorough introduction to all aspects of economics, including micro and macroeconomics, and qualitative and mathematical research methods. This programme will examine the decisions of individuals, the strategies of firms and the policies of individuals to understand and challenge the standard rules of economics. Essex’s particular areas of strength are: Game theory and strategic interactions; Theoretical and applied econometrics; Labour economics. The four-year version of this degree allows students to spend the third year abroad or employed on a placement abroad, while otherwise remaining identical to the three-year course. Alternatively, students can spend their third year on a placement year with an external organisation, where they learn about a particular sector, company or job role, apply their academic knowledge in a practical working environment, and receive inspiration for future career pathways.
