Course details

Summary

The Bachelor of Arts prepares you for a huge range of careers, and you can build your degree in a way that suits you – study a single or a double major, select from a wide range of minors or add elective papers from another area of study. Throughout your Bachelor of Arts you’ll develop effective communication, critical thinking and analysis skills, as well as the ability to research and present professionally. These skills are key to any professional role.

Economics is vital to both the social sciences and public policy. This major develops and applies concepts and frameworks that are essential for understanding and addressing critical economic and social issues.

Economics is about choice; the choices people, companies and governments make every day – from how we respond to price changes to how governments address issues like growing income inequality or climate change. In a world with increasingly scarce resources these decisions are crucial. That’s why economists are highly sought after in both the private and public sector.
