Still confused. Is economics and finance a major in economics with some finance thrown in? And is economics with maths a major in maths with some econ?

Pretty sure econ and ____ means it’s a 50/50 split and econ with ____ is split with economics taking the majority of the content

Usually "and" indicates an even split while "with" indicates an uneven split between the subjects, but this is not universally true, as some "and" degrees let you tailor your course to emphasise one side or the other (e.g. most Oxford joint schools). For all "with" courses I know of the subject named after the "with" is usually studied to a lesser extent though.

For example, "economics and finance" would usually be an even split between the two subjects, but at some universities you might be able to skew one way or the other. However "economics with maths" will almost always be primarily focused on economics with less maths content than the economics content, but more maths content (and/or more pure maths in the style of a math degree than just mathematical methods) than a single honours economics degree.

At the end of the day the degree name (and title) is not very meaningful and you should look at the actual course structure, module/paper options and content of those to get an idea of what the course is like.
