Economics, General
Description:Economics is concerned with how people make choices in conditions of resource scarcity and the results of these choices for society. Many of the world’s most pressing issues such as global warming/climate change, underdevelopment, rising inequality, inflation and financial instability are economic in nature. In understanding these problems, economists make use of a wide variety of analytical techniques borrowed from numerous other fields including history, philosophy, mathematics and statistics.

A BSc Economics degree provides you with an opportunity to develop a firm understanding of human behaviour, not only in commerce, but also in wider society. The models used by economists are as much qualitative (expressed in words) as they are quantitative (mathematical). This is reflected in our BSc programmes as students will be provided the opportunity to gain quantitative, analytical, computing, presentation, and writing skills. These transferable skills are highly sought after across industry, and also provide an excellent platform for future entrepreneurs.
