Course Description

The BA in Economics is created to develop in students the skill set to analyse economic issues and tackle challenges that have both national and international importance. The programme provides students with a clear, holistic understanding of economic principles, concepts and ideas within the wider framework of the social and political environment.

The programme enables students to understand and apply the process of data and evidence collection, including the organization, analysis and presentation of material. It also provides students with a clear understanding of economic systems so that they are abstract concepts to real problems, some of which include issues of economic policy.

The Curriculum
This degree stands out because of the range of course that it offers. Students will take courses such as Behavioural Economics, Public Economics, and Foundations of Economic Ideas. Courses such as these provide students with a more critical and more pluralist approach to economics than many mainstream Economics programmes do. Another key aspect is the interdisciplinary nature of the degree. Due to the liberal arts identity of Richmond University, students in this degree are exposed to courses from other social sciences or other academic areas. This improves the students’ ability to think critically and reflect on the material taught and studied.
