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 Philosophy BSc will enable you to analyse the world with clarity, precision and rigour. You’ll study how people act, and how we can influence them to act otherwise. You’ll learn about the factors that dictate the real events and decisions that are taking place in the world today, as well as acquiring the quantitative skills needed to engage with the subject as commonly practised. In the Philosophy minor, you’ll engage with central questions, arguments and theories concerning our place in the world.
