Course Description

This combined degree will give you a comprehensive understanding of the economy, business and government, and the high-level technical skills to analyse economic and social data and events.

A program in Economics gives you an excellent grounding in economic theory and statistics. You will complete at least one major from economics, agricultural and resource economics, financial economics or econometrics.

You will also complete a second major from these options, those offered by the University of Sydney Business School or from the shared pool, creating a study profile that reflects your expertise in a range of disciplines.

In your final year you will also undertake advanced coursework and a community, industry, research or entrepreneurship project that builds on the skills and knowledge developed in the Bachelor of Economics.

High-achieving students will have the opportunity to complete the highly regarded honours program in economics. This program is central to the strength of Economics at the University of Sydney, providing expert training in applied economics, economic theory and econometrics.

Whichever path you take, the four-year degree will equip you with key capabilities for industry, community and research challenges, preparing you for future success in fields such as banking, financial markets and consulting in both the private and public sectors.
