    I am about to start Economics at my university and we have been advised to pick up the modules which we would like to study.
    The good and bad thing is that there are so many modules to choose from ranging from Philosophy, law, business, sociology, politics, maths, statistics, history, psychology and literature.

    If any economics student has managed to go through a stage like this, which modules did you pick and what made you pick those modules?

    Thanks

    Choose those that you'll enjoy but also will benefit you when you leave uni and look for a career. For example, if you wanted to work in business, pick modules that best relate to this.

    I was thinking so too, but people are telling more that the maths modules (calculus, further calculus, statistics, linear) should be the best ones to choose for the future??????

    I suppose they are right, maths and economics as you know go very well together and most financial companies will like you to have these modules. It just depends what career you are interested in after uni.

    politics, business, maths and even philosophy are all good ones to have, in conjunction, with an Economics degree. Politics, business and maths will all help with being a trader. Philosophy, will help you to understand the ideas behind economic doctrines better.
