Course Introduction

Study economics for a constantly changing world. This degree offers you formal and rigorous training in economic theory and real world application, and allows you to specialise in a key area of the modern economy. Today economics means change. New technologies constantly reconfigure how markets work. New emerging countries from around the world reshape the world economy. At Goldsmiths we encourage you to face these new and evolving challenges by thinking outside the box and marrying innovation with tradition. Goldsmiths is the ideal environment to explore economics in new and imaginative ways informed by our current research. The Institute of Management Studies has academics doing research not only in Economics and Political Economy, but also in Consumer Theory, Management, Business Psychology, Strategy, Innovation and Entrepreneurship. But the research community with which you will come in contact with is much larger, as it includes leading experts from Sociology, Psychology, Computing, Media Studies, History, Politics, Design and other departments teaching courses in the relevant streams. Furthermore, Goldsmiths has a centre for interdisciplinary research in Economics and Political Economy (PERC) that organises lectures, seminars and a host of other events bringing celebrated speakers into Goldsmiths from around the world. Through lectures in the IMS and PERC you'll have access to today's business leaders, economists and policy practitioners. Finally, the Goldsmiths Library of Economics, housed at Senate House Library, is one of the two best known collections in the world on the history of Economics and Business. We are proudly celebrating this by introducing a 3rd year module titled Manias, Bubbles, Crises and Market Failure. In this module we will discuss past economic crises by utilising the substantial resources of the Goldsmiths library and contrasting them with the current crisis.
