At UCD, you can study Economics either as a single subject major (CAO Code: DN710) or as a joint honours within UCD’s BSc in Social Sciences (CAO Code: DN700).

The single major is designed for students who wish to study economics intensively from the time they enter UCD.
It’s a three-year concentrated programme.

The joint major is a four-year degree. In the first two years of the joint BSc degree, students are introduced to the key concepts and tools in economics.
In the subsequent years students learn how to apply these tools and to a variety of contexts. For further information on our degrees please see UCD Horizons or the Social Sciences Prospectus
