Course Introduction

Our Economics degree is about the real world: about how people respond to incentives, and the production and allocation of resources. Think how many news items involve economics: the global recession, tax, interest rates, prices, and the job market.

There are two major strands in our economics degree: Microeconomics which looks at the individual firm and consumer, attempting to understand their behaviour and motivations, and; Macroeconomics which focuses on the economy as a whole, covering major themes like taxation, investment, inflation and so on.

This degree offers professional training in economics, providing an excellent basis for employment in the private or state sector and for further academic study. The first two years cover a core of macroeconomics, microeconomics and the quantitative techniques used in economic analysis and investigation. The final'year enables you to apply this core knowledge to a variety of specialised areas.
