Subject choices: Economics

Economics is about choice and the impact of our choices on each other. It relates to every aspect of our lives, often without us realising it, from the decisions we make as individuals about how to spend our money or family income to the institutions and structures created by governments and firms.  As a way of thinking, Economics can help us make better choices.

The popularity of Economics is a reflection of the value and enjoyment students derive from its study, the wide range of skills they develop and the huge choice of careers that are open to graduates of the subject.

What subjects does Economics combine with?

Economics is a good complement to most A Levels. Popular subjects to do in combination with Economics include Mathematics, History, Psychology, Politics and Geography. You do not need to study Mathematics to pursue Economics. However, many undergraduate courses in Economics do require Mathematics A Level.
