What is Land Economy?
Land Economy is a degree programme only offered at the University of Cambridge and is an inter-disciplinary degree that would appeal to students interested in Law, Economics and Human Geography.
The course is concerned with Law and Economics, and their relationship to the built and natural environment. Other areas such as business regulation, the financial aspects of real estate and international development are also covered as part of the course. The multidisciplinary nature of the course is particularly relevant in the twenty-first century where the environment, law and economics and the control of scarce resources affect the daily lives of people around the world.
Although the course is specific to Cambridge, dual degree programmes in Economics and Geography and Economics and Law are offered at other universities and so you can access similar learning at other institutions.
What can I do with a Land Economy degree?
Graduates from this course go on to become lawyers, economists, civil servants, and to work for national and international agencies. Many go into financial or business careers and others enter public service with local or national organisations, or proceed to further study and research.
What might I need to study Land Economy?
There are no specific subject requirements at A-Level for the Land Economy course however; Economics, Mathematics and Geography are all considered useful preparation for this course.
