Courses Overview

What will I learn?
This course can provide a formal qualification in the field of economics for graduates with little background in the discipline, or it can act as a refresher course in economics for those whose initial studies occurred some time ago. It is also a broadening course for those who wish to extend their knowledge of economics into areas not previously studied such as Economic Development, Economic Policy, Agricultural and Resource Economics or Advanced Economic Theory. Finally, it can be a qualifying step towards higher studies, particularly the Master of Economics program.
Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
identify, coherently explain and synthesise disciplinary concepts to economic issues at an advanced level;
apply critical economic reasoning and advanced analytical skills to complex problems, in order to make informed judgements and decisions;
reflect on the nature and implications of assumptions and value judgements in economic analysis and policy;
use quantitative methods to analyse economic issues and understand their role in economic decision-making and policy decisions; and
demonstrate proficiency in information transfer in written and oral formats at a professional level.
Career Opportunities
Examples include positions in federal and state public services as policy officers, analysts, economic modelers, advisers, trade and industry officers; private sector positions in financial management, forecasting, banking, insurance, agribusiness and agriculture; international positions with agencies such as the World Bank, the United Nations and agribusiness firms.
