You will be able to engage in exciting and creative analyses of real-world problems such as sustainable economic growth, economic management, and climate change. Economics courses are provided on an inter-Faculty basis by the Newcastle Business School. Economics courses form a major in the Bachelor of Commerce and the Bachelor of Social Science.
The major is delivered with a combination of problem-based learning and traditional teaching. Real world problems form the basis for the teaching of key principles of economic analysis and a range of sophisticated techniques of data and graphical analysis. The combination of courses taught in the major together with the core courses of the Bachelor of Commerce support the development of advanced skills and focused knowledge essential for your employment success.
