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 can economic principles and insights be applied to the allocation of scarce resources?
- Should we use taxation to reduce pollution?
- How does economic policy affect inequality?
You will learn how to analyse complex data, 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 or study abroad experience.
