University of Canberra

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00212K

Students of this course explore the most important and complex social, business and government policy issues. The degree 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. Students will: Analyse the complexities of contemporary times through identifying central economic problems and developing corresponding solutions; consider and evaluate a range of economic theories and apply them to contemporary problems and scenarios in order to develop and suggest policy responses; explain and critique the popular explanations of economic life through the application of rigorous and systematic methods of enquiry that assess resource allocation; and recognise, analyse and evaluate the relationships between the scarcity of resources, the nature of values, and the design of social and economic policy in local and global contexts.
