Our undergraduate programmes in Economics provide the training in microeconomics, macroeconomics and quantitative methods that will enable you to pursue a successful career in an economics related profession or to go on to postgraduate work in any branch of economics. However, the SOAS Economics Department is distinctive in offering a much more critical approach to economic theory than is on offer at most other UK universities. We are also distinctive in offering a broad portfolio of courses on development economics and poor countries.

Taken in conjunction with language options or as part of a two subject degree (see BA Economics and...), these courses enable our students to graduate with a real insight into the economic problems faced by developing countries in Asia, the Middle East and sub Saharan Africa. In addition, we have a cluster of staff who specialise in the field of finance, and who will be happy to pass on their understanding of the causes and consequences of the current global financial crisis. While the undergraduate degrees guide students towards courses that build on each other, the structure is flexible and allows for as much individual choice as is compatible with academic coherence.
