Need help with Economics Course at Uni Watch
The two offers I have are Economics (pure) and Epais (Economics, Politics, and international studies)
I heard that the straight economics courses is more reputable throughout the forums, and find it hard to make a decision (don't know how much I like Econ more than politics). Any advice would be appreciated. My offers are also unconditional as I have taken a gap year. Would like to know which degree opens more doors (maybe in finance, Msc programs, etc) Would employers find pure economics to be more focused and quantitative?
I would say choose the subject you want to do, if you do economics you can always add politics modules.
It depends on what industry you're planning on going into, if you're going for anything finance then straight econ is far more reputable. Employers know that there is a limited intake for the straight economics course and especially at a target university like Warwick. Remember that you can pick-and-choose your modules within econ so you can tailor it to the things you want to study, but ultimately end up with that awesome degree. Hope this helps!
A Master's or any post-graduate work typically is more focused on the grades achieved as compared to the subject. Also, most people doing economics BSc go on to do an MSc in something Finance-specific related, other than those pursuing academic economics. Either way flat economics at Warwick will enable you to follow any of these paths as it is such a reputable degree.
