Economics looks at a primary goal in all our lives - how to get resources (or money!) and how to use them (or spend it!). It examines this question from the point of view of individuals, who get money mostly from working or from benefits, and from the view of society where government taxes us and spends the money on our behalf.

What our students say

I particularly enjoy studying Economics as it is a fascinating subject that covers and extensive range of topics. Lessons are very engaging and dynamic, everyone is encouraged to share their opinions on different issues which encourages a healthy debate. The department is incredibly helpful and there is always someone on hand to offer help and support.
