Page: 1 2 3 4 5 Next
 

The Honours programme in Economics is a rigorous, one-year programme aimed at providing students with a thorough and balanced grounding in the theory and policy applications of economics, in preparation for careers in business, government or further academic study. The programme is designed to give students a good understanding of macro- and micro-economic theory, applied sub-fields, and of policy issues. Emphasis is also placed on developing research skills, which includes the art of writing research reports and papers, and conducting quantitative studies.

The first semester starts early in January and the second semester in the middle of July. All respective modules are taught and examined over the course of one semester. Although the academic year ends in December, students are allowed to complete their research report in December and January before graduating at the March ceremony.

The department offers three options to Honours students, depending on interests and prior qualifications.

  • Within the Economics programme, students complete core modules in Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Econometrics, Mathematical Methods and research. Two streams fall within this programme. General information on admission and selection requirements for this programme can be found here
  • The Department of Economics, in partnership with the Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science, also offers an Honours programme in Economics and Mathematical Statistics, which prepares students for advanced econometric modelling and competencies in data science.
