Course Introduction

The central purpose of the Economics major is to help students understand the structures that influence well'being and wealth. The Economics programmes at the College encourage 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 aim of the Philosophy minor is to bring clarity and rigour to your thinking, and to advance your understanding of, and ability to engage with, central philosophical questions, arguments, theories and texts.
