I applied to university looking for a course with breadth and History and Economics hasn’t
disappointed! It’s a great chance to combine historical study with mathematical and economic approaches, applying them both to gain a better understanding of the world in both the past and present.
The scope of the course enables you to steer towards one of the two disciplines, to focus on economic history, or keep a wide
variety throughout your course. During the course I’ve been able to combine Chinese history with Development economics, and in the same term study monetary policy and the fall of the Roman empire.
Oxford’s full of amazing opportunities, both academically and in extra-curricular life. History and Economics complements this with the chance to take in a broad combination of interests and methods, and not only deepen but broaden your understanding of the world around you!
