Summary... header image

Economics involves the examination of questions such as how we get incomes and spend them, how prices are determined, how inflation arises, what causes employment to expand or contract, why countries are more or less prosperous. No previous knowledge of economics is assumed.

As part of an Arts degree, economics is one of four subjects you choose from a menu of subjects in first year. You continue with two of your chosen First Year subjects in second and third year. You may have an option to spend an additional year studying abroad.
