This three-year degree is one of the leading undergraduate economics programs in Australia.
The program introduces you to a diverse, fascinating discipline that addresses a range of big issues in modern life and plays a central role in shaping the broad framework of society at every level. It provides undergraduate training in theoretical and applied aspects of modern economics, econometrics and financial economics.
Although primarily interested in explaining the behaviour of individuals, economics also addresses the collective behaviour of businesses and industries, governments and countries, and the globe as a whole. The discipline is crucial to understanding and solving the major problems and challenges the world faces today, such as global warming, poverty, development, and recession.
The Bachelor of Economics requires you to complete a core major from one of the following areas:
- Financial Economics
- Agricultural and Resource Economics.
A minor or second major can be taken from the core majors, those offered by the Business School, or from the University's shared pool. Subject areas offered by the Business School include:
- Business Analytics
- Business Information Systems
- Business Law
- Industrial Relations and Human Resource Management
- International Business
- Management Marketing.
Bachelor of Advanced Studies
You can also choose to combine your Bachelor of Economics degree with the Bachelor of Advanced Studies. In the Bachelor of Advanced Studies, you can complete a second major, combine studies from a range of disciplines, undertake advanced coursework, and get involved in cross-disciplinary community, professional, research or entrepreneurial project work.
