Welcome to the Department of Economics and Related Studies. As one of the largest economics departments in the UK we offer a great diversity of expertise and international experience.
The research interests of our staff directly inform our teaching and the design of our curriculum. Since it was founded in 1963 members of the Department have made pioneering contributions in areas such as public economics, health economics, experimental economics, economic theory, economic history and econometrics.
We offer a broad range of taught undergraduate and postgraduate programmes and research degrees in economics and finance. We try to be very clear about what we will expect from our students, what they can expect of us, and in describing what we are trying to achieve.
The Department helps to support thriving student societies who play an active role in providing opportunities for internships and employment. A high proportion of our graduates find jobs or go on for further education soon after graduation.
Please explore our web pages to learn more about what the Department has to offer.
