This subject module is recommended for students wishing to
apply to the following
degree programmes: Economics BSc, Information Management for Business BSc, Economics and Business BSc, Politics BSc, European, Social and Political Studies BA, Urban Studies BSc, History BA amongst others.
This module provides a thorough introduction to Economics theory and applications.
The course will cover microeconomics and macroeconomics. You will have two one-hour lectures, followed by two seminar hours the week after. That is, each week’s seminar will be devoted to the topics covered in lecture the previous week.
Upon completion of the course, you should be able to understand the following key economic problems: what economic activity is in different
systems, its various components and functioning, and why we use
‘markets’ to analyse the economy; the model of supply and demand, equilibrium, and the effect of introducing government; the Keynesian macroeconomic model of goods and assets, and the role of government. You will also be able to use mathematical techniques to solve simple problems in micro- and macroeconomics and to apply economic reasoning to analyse simple real-life questions.
