Principles of Macroeconomics

15 Credits

This introductory course is aimed at students on programmes with Economics as a Minor subject. The course is intended for students who have an interest in macroeconomic analysis and economic affairs within their interdisciplinary studies, but not necessarily a prior background in either Economics or Mathematics.

The course equips students with an understanding of the basic principles of Macroeconomics and prepares them for their economics courses in the second and third year. The objective of the course is to familiarise students with basic concepts and conclusions in macroeconomics.

Students should understand the intuition behind the conclusions and be able to interpret real world developments in light of economic theory.

The course is not intended to prepare a student for postgraduate study in theoretical Economics, and its completion does not indicate the adequate level of knowledge for progress for any courses other than those specified on the Programme Specifications for degrees with a Minor in Economics.
