Faculty of Economics

The Economics Tripos at Cambridge focuses on giving you a sound understanding of the core of economics, pure and applied. However, while the specialised nature of this degree enables you to concentrate on studying economics in considerable depth, the breadth of the aims outlined above means that economists need to employ modes of thought and techniques drawn from many other disciplines, among them history, sociology, mathematics and statistics, and philosophy.

Our course aims to develop your knowledge of the workings of economic systems along with a sense of the economic dimensions of social and political issues.
