Why study Economics and Public Policy?

The economics and public policy major is an economics-centred, multidisciplinary major, designed to provide students with an opportunity to understand how government intervention affects the economy in an increasingly globalised world. The major focuses on the economic analytical tools needed to design and evaluate public policies. Core courses in public finance and regulatory economics emphasise the rationale for government intervention and the theoretical framework that underpins the nature of such intervention. Elective courses include advanced microeconomics, macroeconomics, applied econometrics and a range of policy oriented courses. The major also provides students with the necessary multidisciplinary approaches to deal with public policy problems, including elective courses in political sciences.
