Decisions on money, banking, interest rates, taxation and government spending affect us all, with global consequences. • Economics aims to understand the activities of the different agents in the economy – consumers, producers and the government – and how they all fit together. • Our degree will give you the ability to explain complex data in simple terms to different audiences. You’ll also develop excellent mathematical, statistical and problem-solving skills. • In Psychology, you’ll study human behaviour. Psychological research is motivated by the desire to understand both general behaviour (how we learn, remember, co-ordinate our actions and interact with others) and the reasons for the differences between individuals, such as personality or intelligence.
