Economics and Chinese
Whether you have already studied Chinese, or not, this course provides a fantastic opportunity to combine Economics with the in-depth study of a language. You will acquire a solid grounding in in the principles of economics and gain advanced skills in the Mandarin language and a broad range of specialised and detailed insights into Chinese culture, society and history.
A degree that includes Economics will appeal to anyone who wishes to study economic issues at local, national and international levels, while developing practical skills in business, finance and management which will subsequently be attractive to employers in both the private and public sectors. Economics has been defined as the study of human choice, and the impact of choice on the production, distribution and consumption of scarce resources. Microeconomics deals with choice at the individual level, and macroeconomics analyses the economy as a whole. An Economics degree includes a core microeconomics and macroeconomics component, and a specialism focusing on the economic context of business decision making. You will develop an awareness of applications of economics in areas including business management, finance and public policy.
You will benefit from excellent teaching and student support whilst developing key skills and knowledge that you will need for your year abroad, and later on, for the world of work.
