ECONOMICS: - In studying economics you will learn how individuals and society make choices about how scarce resources are used, what products are produced and who gets to consume them. These choices depend on evaluating costs, benefits, risks and effects on others. Economics at Glasgow dates back to Adam Smith, who was a Professor at the University in the 18th century and is widely renowned as the father of modern economics. FRENCH: - French involves the study of a key European and international language as well as the cultures it has influenced across the world. Within your French degree you can choose to focus on a whole range of topics including French comics, French song, medieval France and contemporary French history. You’ll have full access to our extensive Language Resources Centre, which offers excellent audiovisual, digital and printed materials.
