The central aim of the Economics minor is to enable you to understand and think rigorously about economic theory, and about the causes, consequences and implications of economic events, trends and ideas.
Philosophy with Economics BA
The Philosophy with Economics BA will enable you to analyse the world with clarity, precision and rigour. You’ll engage with central questions, arguments and theories concerning our place in the world and what our actions ought to be. In the Economics minor, you’ll study how people act, and how we can influence them to act otherwise. You’ll learn about all the factors that dictate the real events and decisions that are taking place in the world today, as well as developing the quantitative skills needed to engage with the subject as commonly practised.
