Economics is the study of economic theory and applications in the world today. Students interpret economic data and statistics, apply relevant theory, and demonstrate this knowledge using written prose, diagrams and economic terminology. Students learn real world applications of economic theory and understand how macro- and micro-economies work. Students will have the opportunity to access source material in a variety of media, learn at their own pace and in a location of their choice, study alongside students from around the world and gain experience of using the latest online learning tools.

Students are expected to devote 150 hours to the Economics course.
