Economics

Undergraduate courses starting in 2018

Economics is a social science that examines why and how people make choices to improve their wellbeing and wealth.

Economics helps us answer questions, such as:

  • how should the banking system be regulated to prevent another credit crisis?
  • should we raise taxes to reduce pollution?
  • how can economic policy support investment and growth?

You will learn how to analyse complex data and solve economic problems. You will be able to review economic theory and apply quantitative techniques to understand behaviour.

“I find the staff at the Economics department very approachable and it’s nice they can sometimes add their own opinions to the theories we’ve covered. ”
