Assessment method

The key aims of all Economics programmes at the College are threefold. Firstly, they encourage the student to think rigorously about economic theory. Secondly, they develop his or her quantitative skills in order to engage with the subject as it is commonly practised. Finally, they help the student understand economic conditions in different institutional, geographic and socioeconomic settings, in which process the minor subject is of particular use. The Economics with Law programme, in particular, aims to prepare students to be educated observers of economic and socio-political processes. The combination of technical and analytical Economics training together with the study of Law gives students the ability to produce sophisticated economic thoughts and communicate them effectively and appropriately for different audiences.
