Welcome to Economics and Regional Development at Plymouth University.

We are a diverse, research active group of economists specialising in both theoretical and applied economics. The research interests of our staff include areas such as economic growth, environmental and resource economics, game theory, regional economics and public policy.

Our research culture informs many of our final year modules, bridging the gap between theory and practice, ensuring our graduates are equipped with the contemporary knowledge and skills demanded by quality employers.

Opportunities to study with us

We offer a well established and diverse range of BSc degree programmes, including single honours economics, specialist programmes in both financial and business economics and several programmes combining economics with specialism from the social sciences.

All our programmes are offered with an optional placement year, with employers including HM Treasury, Goldman Sacs, BAE Systems, Volkswagen and NHS.
