New College of the Humanities

Course Introduction

The purpose of the economics major is to help students understand the structures that influence well being and wealth. Our economics programme encourages students to think critically about the building blocks of the discipline of economics and enables them to use their knowledge to understand economic events and decisions in the real world. Studying creative writing helps you to harness the full expressive potential and persuasive power of language. It provides you with the tools and the confidence to approach a wide range of literary forms – from short fiction to immersive journalism, poetry to script writing for stage, radio and screen – with aesthetic judgement and practical command.
