You’ll be introduced to economics as a discipline and learn core economic theories and techniques. These will be applicable to studying the economy as a whole (macroeconomics) and for individual economic agents, such as firms and households (microeconomics). You’ll also learn the key concepts and techniques used in the analysis of economic data.
In the second module you’ll study economic theories and techniques in more depth. You’ll also be introduced to econometrics, the statistical analysis of economic data, and learn about various research methods that you can use in a small research project on a topic of your choice.
