Economics (with Professional Placement)

Economics shapes our lives and the fortunes of our communities in a profound way. Few subjects are more relevant or rewarding. We use the tools of social scientific inquiry to examine the complex, contested and often controversial subject that is too easily reduced to ‘economics’, introducing you to real-world applications that can lead to a wide range of potential careers. The study of economics was originally defined as the science of wealth, incorporating the processes of production, consumption and accumulation. Many have since argued that economics is in fact a social science: human welfare is the driving force for wealth. Despite this, the subject is often treated by universities as a branch of science or applied mathematics. We seek to develop a broader appreciation of the theories and practices that shape policy in areas such as government spending, taxation and welfare policy. We combine the study of microeconomics and macroeconomics with the analysis of ethics, people management and business strategy, to help you to understand and influence the debates that structure public policy, political decision-making and business strategy. By the end of the course, you will have the foundation of skills and the expert knowledge to enter a range of professional areas within business and government, including banking and financial services, at local, regional and international level.
