Course Content Why is this course for me?
Economics explores how and why people make decisions and choose between alternative ways of spending their money and using their time, energy and skills. That is why Economics can help to shed light on decision-making in areas from love and marriage, to sports and crime. If you are interested in people’s behaviour and in current affairs, and if you enjoy problem-solving and are naturally analytical with good numeracy skills, then Economics will appeal to you.
