Bachelor of Commerce (Economics) University of Wollongong




Course info


Economics is about the economy: the distribution of resources between people and organisations. Economists are interested in the behaviour of consumers and business firms, the labour market, health care, the environment, technology and innovation, economic growth and development, monetary and fiscal policy, international trade and finance, and the global economy.

This degree

After a common first year in business, you can specialise in economics from second year. Graduates with an economics major will understand the operation of national and international economies at macro and micro levels. Careers in economics include economist, business forecaster, investment analyst, real estate analyst, strategist, and statistician. You will also undertake a final-year capstone subject that lets you apply everything you've learned up to that point in collaboration with students from other disciplines. Plus, you have the option of applying for an internship that provides work-integrated learning.

What you will study

You will study both macroeconomic and microeconomic theory with an emphasis on policy and its effect on working economies.
