Undergraduate Economics

Meet us at our next undergraduate open day at our Whiteknights campus, Readingecon-graduation-2013-no24

Economics lies at the heart of the modern world and is a subject critical to both business success and effective policy making, never more so than at the present moment. In studying undergraduate economics at Reading you will explore and understand the increasingly critical economic and related issues that dominate the news agenda and shape the world in which we live.

Economics as a subject is concerned with the production and distribution of wealth at both a micro (individual and market) and macro (national economy) level. Almost all issues of public and private policy involve economics and so do your own personal decisions. From the 'credit crunch' and recession to the housing market and interest rates, from unemployment and inflation to market competitiveness and industry outputs, economic forces play a key role in our daily lives. See more on why study Economics at Reading.
