Undergraduate Economics degrees at Goldsmiths

Studying economics at Goldsmiths offers an innovative approach to a traditional subject: one that focuses on the social, political and business challenges of an evolving world.

Why study Economics at Goldsmiths?

  • Our degrees provide rigorous training in economic theory and real-world applications, and allow you to develop a broad understanding of the discipline or to specialise by combining economics with data science, marketing, law or management 
  • You’ll learn to evaluate arguments and evidence from different sources – and to use different theories and concepts together with quantitative methods – to formulate and address questions about crucial real-world problems
  • As the financial and political hub of the UK, London provides the ideal backdrop to study economics, and provides access to business leaders, economists and policy practitioners

I absolutely loved my time on this course. Not only did I receive all the help I could have asked for from my lecturers, but I was also presented with plenty of opportunities to expand my CV and explore my personal economic passions through a range of modules. I wouldn't change anything about my experience, and can't recommend Goldsmiths and this course strongly enough.

The atmosphere on campus is wonderful. Being in a space where art can be studied alongside economics was interesting as I felt it stimulated different parts of my brain. Being here has helped me to think longer-term about the sort of role I wish to play in society.
