BSc in Economics with Human Geography (Full Time)

Aberystwyth University

Bachelor Degree , Human Geography

Course Description

This BA Economics and Human Geography scheme allows you to study two topics that mutually inform one another. As part of the Aberystwyth Business School you will investigate a wide range of economic issues that impact on every-day life (including the creation of employment such as inflationary pressures, international trade issues, the process of business competition, innovation and growth, the protection of natural resources and government policy-making). Alongside this, you will study Human Geography, investigating the ways in which human societies define, make and shape place, exploring the spatiality of economies, cultures, and politics.

In choosing to study Economics and Human Geography, you will engage with two dynamic subjects. In Economics you will engage with topics which are fundamental to understanding not just the operations of business and commerce, but the organisation and functioning of societies. Your course will cover a variety of grounding principles and key study skills in the first year such as: Economic Principles And Skills, Mathematics for Economics and Finance, and Statistics for economists. In Year 2 and 3 you will advance your understandings of economics through courses in Macro- and Micro-economics and Econometrics.

Alongside this study of Economics, you will also engage with contemporary Human Geography, completing modules which provide you with a firm foundation of skills for examining relations between people, space and space. In your first year, you will be introduced to the basics of Human Geography. You will then go on to study issues such as Cultural Geography or Political Geography. In your final year, you will also be able to choose from a range of other modules that map well onto the study of Economics including: Governing Uncertain Futures; and Urban Risk and Environmental Resilience; World Regional Islam or Geographies of the Global Countryside.

Teaching in the Aberystwyth Business School is underpinned by research. Academic staff contribute to research excellence within the university. In the most recent Research Excellence Framework assessment (REF 2014) 95% of research submitted by the university was rated as being internationally recognised, You also will benefit greatly from studying in DGES because it has always been at the cutting edge of innovations in teaching and research. In the most recent REF (2014), the Department of Geography and Earth Sciences was ranked in the top 15 departments in Britain for Geography, coming top in Wales.
