BSc Economics offers a grounding in the fundamentals of Economics. The most powerful aspect of Economics is that it teaches a way of thinking which can then be applied to a specific field. If you want to be a government economist advising on tax or social/welfare costs, you need specific knowledge and skills. The same is true for a career in finance. You need specific finance models – how much to invest here, or advise clients to invest there. But the mode of thinking is the same for both: it is the critical, disciplined way of thinking that you will get from an Economics degree at Lancaster University. Economics opens up the world because the critical and analytical thinking skills that it inculcates are applicable to whatever your passion, be they politics, finance, the trading floor, or working for an NGO, all use the same skills.
