New College of the Humanities

Course Introduction

The Economics with Creative Writing BSc will help you develop wide-ranging skills, from the mathematical to the creative. A degree for polymaths, you will study the economic and political forces that impact our lives, while also learning to develop your writing skills – allowing you to communicate your economic knowledge effectively. You will have the chance to develop your analytical skills and to apply them to a huge variety of subjects, from analysing poetry, scripts, fiction and nonfiction, to analysing quantitative data and human behaviours.

The Economics with Creative Writing degree aims to prepare students to be educated observers of economic and socio-political processes. The combination of technical and analytical Economics training together with the study of Creative Writing gives students the ability to produce sophisticated economic thoughts and communicate them effectively and appropriately for different audiences.

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.
