Economics within Natural Sciences 2022-2023
This pages is primarily intended for existing students. It consists of modules available to Natural Sciences students, Joint-Honours regulations and general advice (which includes links to Departmental advice.)
The following lists the module code and the title of each module by the level of each module - clicking on the link will take you to further details listed in the Faculty Handbooks.
The last digit of the module code indicates whether the module is single, double or triple. The level indicates the year in which modules are normally taken, but it is often the case that students take modules from the adjacent level beneath the year of study. Visit the Subjects page for the general overarching rules and structure.
Please note that the modules on offer and the requirements for progression can change from year to year and that the only combinations of modules that are guaranteed to fit in the timetable are those splits between the two departments on an approved Joint Honours route (MSci and BSc).Capstone Modules. These modules are denoted with G

Advice for progression and other aspectsNatural Sciences advice
Students are unable to take Economic Methods (ECON1021) if they take any Mathematics module other than Discrete Mathematics (MATH1031) due to a major overlap in content.
There is some limited progression if one of Economic Principles I: Macroeconomics (ECON2011) or Economic Principles II: Microeconomics (ECON2021) or Intermediate Finance (ECON2101) is taken.
You are advised to brush up your academic reading and writing skills and at least visit the Literacy Skills webpage and take a workshop!
