New College of the Humanities

Course Introduction

The central purpose of the Economics major is to help students understand the structures that influence well'being and wealth. The Economics major encourages students to think critically about the building blocks of the discipline of Economics, as well as enable them to use their knowledge to understand economic events and decisions in the real world. The English minor combines the broad historical coverage of traditional English degrees with distinctive features reflecting the College’s liberal arts tradition and aims to prepare its students to read not only the texts which we call literature, but all other uses of language, with greater acuity, penetration, and pleasure, for the rest of their lives. The disciplinarily and its interdisciplinary of the English programme makes it an ideal choice as your minor.
