The course is ideal preparation for a career as a professional economist working on applying economics to policy issues or business situations.  In addition to studying core modules in microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics, students can pick from a wide range of field modules.  Students also have the option of completing a two-term specialisation in one of Behavioural Economics, Law and Economics of Competition, Environmental and Energy Economics or Development Economics.
