Anyone interested in knowing more about human behaviour will find economics fascinating. Economists study how individuals and groups of people make choices about managing their limited resources. Economics is not just about money, business and the stock market. Although these are important aspects of the subject, economics also deals with wider social and environmental issues including climate change, globalisation, sustainable development, and income and wealth distribution.
Students of economics develop a range of practical and transferable skills that benefit them in education and the world of work. These skills include critical investigation, analytical thinking, oral and written communication, numeracy, research, ICT and data handling. The potential earnings for students with a degree in Economics are among the highest for all graduates. There is currently a shortage of qualified economists.
