Programme overview

How can economic change in the past help us understand future sustainable development? The programme is taught in English and aimed at recent high school graduates with a strong academic background, international career ambitions and the drive to gain knowledge and skills in global context analysis, both in the public and private sector.

Economic history is concerned with how an economic change in the past can help us understand the future. It uses concepts and theories from the social sciences to study the development of different economies and understand them in their social, political and cultural contexts. It combines the skills of the economist and the historian, the statistician and the sociologist. Meanwhile, economics tackles a broad range of problems, from economic development barriers to international financial crises.

This programme combines the two complementary fields of economic history and economics. It will appeal if you want training in the application of economic theory and quantitative methods to real problems. You will examine important global issues, for example, mechanisms driving economic growth and development over time at both national and regional levels, and the importance of education and human capital in economic change. While the scope is global, the Scandinavian experience will be central when identifying lessons to be learned.

The BSc in Economy and Society offers:

  • A vast, yet focused curriculum in economic history and economics, combined with complementing electives in other social sciences.
  • International perspectives from faculty members and students.
  • Team-based projects enhancing cross-cultural learning.
  • Opportunities of internships in companies and/or exchange studies abroad at one of our partner universities.
  • Study and career advice.
