This double degree allows you to study both Economics and Computer Science and discover the many practical applications from combining such majors.

Computer Science involves the study of the design, construction and uses of computer systems. It is concerned with the representation of data and data structures in computer systems and the design of algorithms for automatic manipulation of this information by programming languages and machine systems.

During your Economics study, you will develop analytical skills which have wide applications in business, finance and policy. The double degree program has an extensive range of majors in both economics (including econometrics and financial economics) and computer science (including database systems, artificial intelligence and programming languages).

An honours year in either economics or computer science is possible for high-achieving students following completion of the double degree.
