Bachelor of Social & Economic Policy (Economic Policy)

University of Canberra

This course helps students explore the most important and complex social, business and government policy issues; matters made all the more poignant when analysed from a unique location at the heart of the country's socio-economic policy making in Canberra. It provides major grounding in economics and sociology, but offers flexibility in terms of subject areas explored, meaning students can study disciplines such as political science and international relations, as well as law, justice studies, business, commerce or management. The course focuses on developing intuition and critical thinking, and aims at producing well-rounded graduates with strong analytical and problem-solving skills. Students will become equipped with quantitative, research and policy-relevant tools that have a direct use in the market place and are valued by prospective employers. By the end of the course, students will have developed a confident understanding of real-world policy issues and their economic solutions, and will be prepared for either further study in the form of a Bachelor of Philosophy (Honours), or a career in the corporate or regulatory sectors, and beyond.
