BA Economics and Modern Languages and Cultures modules

Combining economics with modern languages and cultures gives your degree a truly global focus. You'll develop the practical skills an economist needs, including statistical and quantitative methods, and advanced economic analysis. You'll get a solid grounding in modern economic theory and how to apply it, and you'll explore current debates on economic policy.
