New College of the Humanities

Course Introduction

Our Economics major encourages you to think critically about the building blocks of the discipline of economics, and enables you to understand economic events and decisions in the real world.

The key aim of all Economics courses at the College is threefold. Firstly, they encourage you to think rigorously about economics theory. Secondly, they develop you quantitative skills in order to engage with the subject as it is commonly practised. Finally, they help you to understand economic conditions in different institutional, geographic and soci-economics settings.

The Economics with Politics & International Relations BSc is designed to teach you how to think critically about how the world operates, with a particular focus on governments and political institutions within them. An advanced understanding of economics will give you key insights into political decision-making and policy. This will be complemented by your study of political theory, the organisation of government, and international relations for your minor.
