Undergraduate Programmes


A first degree in Economics or Econometrics will not only prepare you for a career as an economist in the industry, the City or government, but will also be excellent preparation for a range of related careers such as accountancy, banking and managerial jobs in general. 

Applying to study an undergraduate course as an intercollegiate student

Students studying at another college within the University of London can apply to study a course (module) at LSE as an intercollegiate student. Those wishing to study an undergraduate course within the Department of Economics must first complete this form.  


We offer three single honours degrees, in Economics (further information on the BSc Economics degree), in Econometrics and Mathematical Economics (further information on the BSc Econometrics and Mathematical Economics degree), and in Economics with Economic History (further information on the BSc Economics with Economic History degree).

You can also take degrees which combine Economics in various ways with Economic History, Environmental Policy, Geography, Government, Philosophy and Mathematics.

From 2015 we offer a new, four-year undergraduate degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics (further information on the BSc Philosophy, Politics and Economics degree), combining the disciplines of philosophy, politics and economics and run by the Philosophy Department.
