This 30-credit course both broadens and deepens the scope of the previous (A) course, and offers a wide range of 7.5-credit modules. Of these, you must choose either microeconomics or macroeconomics, after which you can choose from the menu of courses available that semester. These optional courses are divided into three specialisations:
- Economics and the Theory of the Firm: Industrial Organisation, Corporate Governance and Financial Economics
- International Relations and Development: International Trade Theory, Development Economics and Environmental Economics or Health Economics
- Economics and the Social Sciences: Social Choice, Public Finance and Socio-Economic Institutions.
This type of specialisation is a positive asset on the labour market, and is also a good knowledge foundation for writing your Bachelor’s essay. On the course, you will learn to assimilate insights about the importance of economics in the process of social development, as well as the responsibility associated with the use of economic tools. You will also be able to make independent decisions in the field of economics and provide insightful reflections on the importance of ethics in economic research.
The course is based on lectures, but there may be some seminars and computer-based exercises, depending on your choice of specialisation. Assessment depends on the modules you choose to study, but may include written examination, take-home examination. Seminar attendance, oral and written presentation or computer exercises.
