In your first year you will study a range of modules designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills required to function as an Economist. Alongside teaching and learning in Micro and Macro Economics you will begin to address some of the current issues and concerns in individual markets, with a key focus on the role of Economics in Business. Further modules in the first year will cover an introduction to Economics and Public Policy and the opportunity to work on a team research project centred on either the Housing Market, Environment or a commodity/product market of your choice. You will also cover work on ethics and society to compliment the more theoretical aspects of study, with a focus on practical application of Economic principles.
