Economics is a social science and concerns how decisions affect our wealth, well-being and income. Through the BSc in Economics, you will study macroeconomics and microeconomics and can choose from a number of optional modules such as finance, health economics or experimental economics.Â
You will be able to use the behavioural economics laboratory to run real experiments. You also have open access to the Bloomberg facilities, which are the same trading terminals used in the City. You can take optional modules from the Humanities and Social Sciences and interdisciplinary modules. Single Hons Economics students from the University of Southampton can also take a minor subject, such as a language, web science, criminology, demography, education, sustainability or social policy. There are over twenty minors to choose from.
You can choose between a number of 'pathways' through the degree, to reflect your background and interests. Module choices in year one are dependent on whether you have studied economics at A level. Eight modules are studied each year, with four in each semester. During year three you will study a dissertation, equivalent to two modules, which is a piece of independent research on a topic of your choice spread over both semesters. You may also combine single Honours Economics with a minor subject. You apply for the BSc Economics programme and only have to decide if you want to do a minor once you arrive. You can drop the minor subject at any time. The minor consists of five modules from a particular structured pathway. Usually the minor begins in the second semester of first year.

The University of Southampton is a fantastic university which undertakes world-class research and amazing teaching. I have experienced first-hand the enthusiasm and passion of my lecturers and seminar tutors. The campus is particularly brilliant due to the large number of facilities based directly on campus such as the GP, Costa, Banking etc. In addition, the campus is incredibly green and is filled with nature and animals. The pastoral care is also very good and so it is easy to feel welcome at this institution.
