About the Course

Study of Economics aims to understand the activities of the different agents in the economy – consumers, producers and the government – and how they all fit together.

Economics is the practical and theoretical science of the production and distribution of wealth. It is based around the system of the production, buying and selling of goods and services. As a social science it is primarily concerned with the behaviour and relationships of people and societies and economics is applied to the real world to study and analyse the activities and interaction between people, markets and governments.

Although there are various subdivisions of economics, the two main areas of study are microeconomics and macroeconomics.

It has grown considerably as a field and now incorporates a number of other subjects, including sociology, geography, law and several others to develop our collective understanding of the economic systems that exist today.

Economics is a real-world discipline so courses like history and politics may help a prospective economics student develop an understanding of the world, including the systems that govern it and the events that helped to shape it.

The skills developed through studying economics are incredibly versatile and can be employed in a wide range of industries – by the time the course ends an economics graduate will be very comfortable with dealing with numbers as well as experienced in using innovative techniques to overcome problems.

They will have developed an analytical mind alongside a strong economic awareness of the world, skills which can be transferred to numerous industries. A lot of professionals in banking and accountancy hold economics degrees. For any career related to finance, an economics degree is a good foundation to build on.

Roles in data analysis such as an actuary, or an investment analyst, are typical careers for an economics graduate. For those who want a job directly related to economics, further study is recommended. Fortunately, there are an array of master’s and PhD opportunities and these courses give students a chance to specialise further and conduct detailed research in areas of interest.
An economics graduate will have some unique and highly sought after skills and in most cases, employment prospects are good.
