BA (Hons) in Arts - Economics University College Cork




Course info


Economics is the study of people’s motives, expectations, decisions, hopes, disappointments and uncertainties. It can be used to examine a variety of issues, from social media to poverty.

The language of work, business, government and the media is increasingly drawn from economics.

Graduates with an economics qualification are needed to address the problems and challenges that are facing business, government and society today.

Choosing economics will give you an excellent foundation for a career in business, finance, government, teaching and the media, and for doing further study in business courses such as marketing, management and computing. The teaching approach that we use will prepare you for working in the knowledge economy.

You do not need to have Economics in the Leaving Certificate to study Economics at UCC.
