Course details
Course UCAS code: LL13
Qualification type:
  • BA (Hons), Full-time , Duration: 3 Years
Course Summary:
It is possible to study Economics as a joint honours degree with Sociology (50% Economics, 50% Sociology). A degree that includes Economics will appeal to anyone who wishes to study economic issues at local, national and international levels, while developing practical skills in business, finance and management which will subsequently be attractive to employers in both the private and public sectors. Economics has been defined as the study of human choice, and the impact of choice on the production, distribution and consumption of scarce resources. Microeconomics deals with choice at the individual level, and macroeconomics analyses the economy as a whole. An Economics degree includes a core microeconomics and macroeconomics component, and a specialism focusing on the economic context of business decision making. You will develop an awareness of applications of economics in areas including business management, finance and public policy. Sociology, and this course, investigates social life and the way it shapes people's behaviour, beliefs and identity. Its subject matter ranges from examination of the face-to-face interactions of daily life to large-scale social institutions, social movements and global processes. By understanding the social world, we gain a better understanding of ourselves and our own social situations.

How's your Welsh? Nearly half of the town speak it, so better brush up! Bangor is a beautiful place, with Snowdonia nearby. The nights out are legendary although, you'll never have one like it anywhere else. Be warned – between the massive hills everywhere and the sticky floors, you’re not gonna want to wear your best shoes. It’s a small town so you’ll make loads of friends quickly. As for the uni itself, my teachers were really charming, intelligent and unafraid to push you into new ways of thinking, and the Union were amazing at making us feel welcome and supported.
