Economics Undergraduate Degrees

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Economics at SOAS probes the mechanism of society and explains the factors and processes that underpin production, exchange and distribution, in order to effectively inform economic policy, as well as to understand the consequences of economic and social well-being.

Students are encouraged to develop a deep understanding of particular countries and issues, based on concrete analysis of history, institutions and political economy. This reflects a shared view at SOAS that economics should be rigorous, reflective and, fundamentally, useful.
