Bachelor of Economics

Monash University

Economics is at the heart of how our society operates from the consumption of goods and services to changes in employment rates or impacts on living standards. Students will choose to focus on either Economics and Economic Policy or Mathematical Economics and Econometrics. In Economics and Economic Policy students will develop extensive knowledge of both economic theories and mathematical/econometric modelling and how these can be used to develop and support public policy. Students will learn how to apply economic theories and analytical tools to economic policy outcomes, and how to identify and communicate the impact of government policies in both domestic and international environments. In Mathematical Economics and Econometrics students will focus on the mathematical side of economics. This will give students the ability to formulate and test economic propositions in complex economic environments. Students will develop skills in econometric models and methodologies and learn how to evaluate economic theories using empirical data.
