If you see yourself working as an advisor in a national or international agency, as a teacher or a journalist, or if you simply wish to keep your options open before going on to a career in business or the professions, the economics programme will be an attractive alternative. In this programme you have an enhanced opportunity of studying problems of economic policy. The problem of achieving macroeconomic and exchange rate stability has been of great importance to many countries in recent years for example, while microeconomic issues such as the allocation of resources to health or to raising environmental quality continue to figure prominently in public discussion. An economics degree gives you a perfect opportunity to study these issues. This programme will be attractive to students for whom English is a foreign language and who are expecting to use their English in any future career in an international business environment. English Language Studies consists of modules which have a dual function: each module provides its own English language studies focus (e.g. Interpersonal Communication or English in Society) as well as providing English language improvement opportunities both for general and academic purposes.
