Study the economic and political forces that impact our lives, while also learning to develop your writing skills – allowing you to communicate your economic knowledge effectively. You will have the chance to develop your analytical skills and to apply them to a huge variety of subjects, from analysing poetry, scripts, fiction and nonfiction, to analysing quantitative data and human behaviours.
The Economics with Creative Writing degree aims to prepare students to be educated observers of economic and socio-political processes. The combination of technical and analytical Economics training together with the study of Creative Writing gives students the ability to produce sophisticated economic thoughts and communicate them effectively and appropriately for different audiences.
Teaching & Learning
You will typically experience an average of 13 or more hours of high-quality contact time in each teaching week, in considerably smaller groups than are the norm for UK institutions at the undergraduate level, if you choose to study Economics as your major subject. The exact number of contact hours will depend on your choice of minor subject and any optional courses.
Your contact hours will include a mixture of teaching methods best suited to the subject matter and to achieve the learning outcomes for each individual course. Teaching formats include small group tutorials, seminars, and lectures of between 10 and 60 students for your degree courses.
