Bachelor of Economics (Advanced)

The University of Adelaide

The Bachelor of Economics (Advanced) is designed for high-achieving students seeking a uniquely structured, specialised economics degree, with a strong emphasis on research and advanced economic analysis skills. It is ideally suited to students who aspire to: - obtain a deep understanding of how economic and social outcomes depend on institutions, economic policy and endowments (such as resources and skills) - become leaders in business, policy or research. A personal mentor from the research staff of the School of Economics is available to guide individual students. This provides the valuable opportunity to interact with, and learn from, eminent researchers in the school, notable economists from abroad, and high-ranking economists practising in the private and public sector. The degree also features small-group work, and special activities and events with distinguished visitors.

This program contains compulsory courses designed to give students a highly developed understanding of economics and advanced research skills. The compulsory courses include the three program-specific advanced courses: Advanced Economic Analysis I, II and III. They cover the central areas of economics and complement the standard core courses in microeconomics (how consumers and firms behave and how markets work), macroeconomics (the growth and stability of the whole economic system) and econometrics (the statistical tools for economic data analysis). The compulsory courses make up approximately half of the degree. Like the conventional Bachelor of Economics, the remaining components of the program consist of optional or elective courses chosen from a large pool of courses from Economics or other areas. Unlike the conventional Bachelor of Economics, students in the Advanced degree can also obtain majors in Finance or Politics and International Studies.
