    Course Summary

    Economics is in many ways the study of scarcity. It looks at the more or less limitless demand for goods and services in human society, and the limited supply to time, labour and materials with which to fulfil that demand. It combines theoretical understanding with practical understanding of business, supply and consumption issues to achieve better, more efficient and more sustainable solutions to that eternal problem.

     York University’s BA or iBA in Economics will see you exploring both individual and societal economic problems and analysing the effectiveness of both classical and innovative solutions. You’ll study both abstract theory and actual case studies in order to relate the academic nature of economic thought to real world applications. You will also have access to the Economic Student Society.

    You can select your own specialty by taking different optional modules. You might choose to focus on Business Development, Strategic Financing, Pricing Policy, Market Forecasting or something else entirely.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
