Economics looks at a primary goal in all our lives - how to get resources (or money!) and how to use them (or spend it!). It examines this question from the point of view of individuals, who get money mostly from working or from benefits, and from the view of society where government taxes us and spends the money on our behalf.

What our students say

Economics helps me to understand how the world uses its scarce resources. The staff are incredible at Carmel; they offer you lots of support and are willing to help with any problems you may have in both your academic life or your personal development.
