    I don't know which one to choose, I previously thought the requirements for economics would be to high, but after looking at courses through ucas I found I mite be able to get on the course.

    What do you guys on TSR think of both degrees and which one do you think would be more worthwhile and does anyone know about the job prospects of doing an economics degree.

    Cheers

    I have done modules from each department as part of my degree.

    My best advice to you is, do what you think you would enjoy. If you enjoy it, you will do well and that is all that matters.

    When you begin university, you will find depending on how much 'core' and how much 'selective' options that are part of your degree, you can select modules in either department to tailor your needs. For example, you do an Economics degree and you have the fixed core modules that you have to do regardless, but you may also have some choice to select additional modules that you want to do. Vice versa if you did an Accounting degree, you could select Economics modules.

    Do not get bogged down thinking what your degree would look like to employers etc. It's much worse if you failed and ended up with a degree that looks rubbish to employers. Also, do you like maths or business studies more?

    Cheers for the reply mate and I'll defiantly take what you said into consideration.

    I would imagine that economics is more enjoyable and covers a much wider area.
