Is a Bachelor of Economics for me?
The Bachelor of Economics does not have any Yr 11 or 12 prerequistes, but some maths studies are recommended as economics involves aspects of applied mathematical studies. Economics in secondary school may be advantageous but is not essential. First year economics lecturers assume students have not studied economics previously. English in secondary school is recommended, as essay writing skills are useful in all University courses.
Half of the courses in a Bachelor of Economics degree are in the area of Economics, and the other half of the degree is made up of elective courses. You can choose further economics courses or courses from other disciplines, such as:
- Environmental or Development Studies
- Computer science
You will complete your degree in 3 years of full time study, or you can choose take your studies part-time.
