The program

The degree provides major grounding in economics and sociology, but offers flexibility in terms of subject areas explored, meaning you can study disciplines such as political science and international relations, as well as law, justice studies, business, commerce or management.

The course focuses on developing intuition and critical thinking, and aims at producing well-rounded graduates with strong analytical and problem-solving skills. You’ll become equipped with quantitative, research and policy-relevant tools that have a direct use in the market place and are valued by prospective employers.

By the end of the course, you’ll have developed a confident understanding of real-world policy issues and their economic solutions, and will be prepared for either further study in the form of a Bachelor of Philosophy (Honours), or a career in the corporate or regulatory sectors, and beyond.

Study a Bachelor of Social and Economic Policy (Economic Policy) from University of Canberra and you will:

  • analyse the complexities of contemporary times through identifying central economic problems and developing corresponding solutions
  • consider and evaluate a range of economic theories and apply them to contemporary problems and scenarios in order to develop and suggest policy responses
  • explain and critique the popular explanations of economic life through the application of rigorous and systematic methods of enquiry that assess resource allocation
