Commencing semesters, 2017
School of Economics
Why study Economics?
Economics is the science of decision making. As individuals, communities, companies and governments, we face choices every day, weighing up the costs and benefits of our decisions. With the ongoing momentum of globalisation, development, economic/financial/cultural integration and increasing pressure for ecological sustainability, economics remains the key element. Economics determines much of today's social and political landscape, and students trained in this field are exceptionally well-positioned to play a leading part in the future direction of business, government and society.
What you can study
Students who are contemplating an extended major in Economics are strongly advised to complete MATH1040 as an elective in the BA if they have not passed Year 12 Maths B or equivalent. Students wishing to enter the Honours program in Economics need to have completed ECON1050, 3010 and 3020, and have an appropriate level of mathematical and econometric skills. These additional courses may be taken as general electives towards the BA.
