Program Description

Economics is a social science which focuses on the allocation of scarce resources among competing needs. It affects us all, with almost every aspect of modern society, from the taxes we pay to the price of anything we buy, dictated by economic forces.

By studying Economics BSc (Hons) at Coventry University, you will have the opportunity to investigate how individuals, businesses, and governments continually make challenging choices to ensure they pursue their goals in the most optimal way, despite the many constraints they face, such as limited time, money and materials. Economics provides the analytical tools to understand how such decisions are made and assesses the consequences for individuals and societies, both nationally and internationally.

Through a focus on contemporary economic debate and the applications of economics, our course seeks to cultivate logical thinking, quantitative skills and real-world expertise to support your employability upon successful graduation. Former graduates of the course have gone on to find successful careers in areas such as financial services, accountancy, consultancy and the civil service.
