Content

First and Second Year: The first two years of study comprise an introduction to the essential framework of economic theory. Microeconomics (The Economics of Business and Society and Microeconomics 2) studies the behaviour of the individual unit in the economy such as the consumer, worker or firm. It tackles the fundamental economic problem that resources are scarce, which forces choices regarding what goods to produce and consume.

Macroeconomics (The Global Economy and Macroeconomics 2) analyses the behaviour of the economy as a whole in order to explain the level and growth of national income, unemployment and of inflation in both a domestic and international setting

Third and Fourth Year (Honours): The Honours years in Economics offer a high quality, technical programme that is suitable as a preparation for postgraduate study. The programme also follows the long established Scottish tradition of investigating economic problems within a variety of political, social and historical contexts.
