Welcome to the Department of Economics. We pride ourselves in our teaching and research excellence.
“The best education is not just about learning standard materials and preparing for standard examinations. Students need to think like an economist and understand how data can support their argument. Those are the skills that matter in the real world! We think Royal Holloway is the ideal place for you to prepare for this challenging and exciting future.” - Dr Michael Naef - Head of Department
