Economics Pathway

Studying a Pathway at UWTSD

For those who have an interest in Economics and are considering working in the financial or political sector, or wish to have a greater understanding of financial systems and economies, you can study an Economics pathway alongside certain Single Honours degree programmes.

An Economics Pathway at UWTSD will ensure that students are capable of understanding, explaining and articulating economical approaches, theories and situations that are fundamental in our daily lives.

Following an Economics Pathway will provide students with the opportunity to study Economics alongside a main humanities subject.  

Students following an Economics pathway will study 2 modules of Economics each year and 4 modules in the chosen Single Honours subject. 

The pathway option is ideal for students who are particularly interested in working within a financial or political sector and would like to expand their knowledge and skill set. In a world where the job market is increasingly competitive, providing an economics aspect to a student’s degree gives students the confidence and edge over other graduates vying for similar job roles.
