Students who study economics can expect to develop their analytical skills and to be intellectually challenged, whether they view the discipline as providing specific vocational skills or as simply an area of general interest to them. An ‘add-on’ economics sub-major can complement almost any degree, be it in business or any other area. Economics gives a broad perspective on a very fundamental aspect of relationships between individuals, firms, institutions and countries. It has been described by some as the queen of the social sciences, since it is of relevance to almost all areas of study. This sub-major is available to students who are not enrolled in the Bachelor of Economics or undertaking an Economics, Applied Economics or Economics and Finance Key Program or Major.
