Course summary

Economics uses theory and empirical evidence to explain the dynamism of economic systems. History seeks to understand social, political, and intellectual shifts as well as to determine the causes and consequences of economic trends.

You'll join two highly-performing research intensive departments and graduate as a critical thinker, effective communicator and creative and analytical problem solver.
