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.

If you are interested in people’s behaviour and in current affairs, and if you enjoy problemsolving and are naturally analytical with good numeracy skills, then Economics will appeal to you.
