About Economics at Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Wolverhampton

Paul Samuelson describes Economics as the "study of how societies use scarce resources to produce valuable commodities and distribute them among different people." By learning about Economics you will see that there are various perspectives on how resources are allocated and that the different allocations will impact on social, political and business concerns.

This programme provides a strong background in economics principles but also provides a knowledge and understanding of the recent developments in economics and the application of economic concepts to current issues. For example, a module on sustainability will delivered jointly with staff from the Centre for International Development and Training. As part of your study of Economics you will develop skills in the organisation and analysis of statistical data, the interpretation of economic issues and the communication of economic ideas. These skills have been identified as being in demand by employers by a number of surveys, such as the one carried-out by the Economics Network.
