The Bachelor of Economics degree provides you with a comprehensive understanding of the overall context of business and government, and the high-level technical skills to analyse economic and social data and events. It will equip you with key capabilities to develop economic and social policy for those who want to work in fields such as financial markets, business, banking, and consulting in both the private and public sectors.
This specialist program will provide you with an excellent grounding in economic theory and business statistics and will allow you to complete a major in economics, agricultural economics, environmental and resource economics, financial economics or the more statistically based econometrics. You can also combine your study with additional majors and electives in any area of arts and social sciences, the University of Sydney Business School or from one of the many faculties throughout the University. Central to the strength of economics at the University of Sydney is the large undergraduate honours program and its two key elements: an applied economics focus and expert training in economic theory and econometrics
