Are you an analytical person with a passion to tackle pressing socioeconomic challenges such as poverty, unemployment, financial instability, gender and racial inequality and the effects of climate change?  As a BSc Economics student, you will learn to take a scientific evidence-based approach to understand, critique and create policies to combat economic and social problems.

Employers in all sectors from government to financial services have a growing need for economists who can analyse and interpret data. This requires a strong grounding in analytical and quantitative methods beyond the Economics core in the Maynooth Bachelor of Arts programme (MH101).

With an emphasis on independent research, the programme is designed to allow you to flourish based on your individual curiosity and strengths.

From BSc Economics, you can automatically continue with the MSc Economics Programme should you perform at the required level i.e. 55% overall in your degree.

Why choose this degree?

  • From day one, you will have an academic advisor to guide you throughout your studies to help reach your potential.
  • From the very first year you learn how to do independent research, not just consume knowledge created by others. You will be able to take modules from a variety of disciplines such as Sociology, Geography, Law and Statistics. This allows you to develop synergies in your own research.
  • You will have the guidance of our postgraduate alumni mentors who hold influential positions outside of academia.
  • In the third year, you will be given guidance for your BSc thesis, jointly with the MSc students, on research and presentation skills. This will allow a smooth transition to the postgraduate level.
