The Honours programme in Economics is a rigorous, one-year programme aimed at providing the student with a thorough and balanced grounding in the theory and policy of economics in preparation for a career in business or government. The programme is designed to give the student a good understanding of macro- and micro-economic theory, applied economics within the macro- and micro fields, and of policy issues. Also, emphasis is placed on developing research skills, which includes the art of writing research reports and papers.

The first semester starts early January and the second semester in the middle of July. Modules are taught and examined on a semesterised basis. 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.
