Economics is a social science examining how consumers and producers make choices, and how these affect the supply and demand for resources and their prices.
Economics helps us answer questions such as:
- How should the Government allocate scarce resources to maximise society’s welfare?
- How to best tackle climate change; NHS waiting lists; productivity issues?
- How can economic policy reduce income equality?
You will learn how to analyse complex data and solve quantitative problems, and apply these skills to real-life economic challenges.
Many of our economics graduates go on to pursue a range of careers in both the private and public sectors. All economics courses have the option of a professional placement and/or study abroad experience.
