SCQF Level 8 (Year 1 Undergraduate)
The course is intended to develop a rigorous understanding of core economic models and analysis, together with an ability to apply the analysis in a variety of contexts. Semester 1 focuses on developing and using models of supply and demand in both microeconomic (individual market) and macroeconomic (economy-wide, aggregate) contexts. The recommended textbooks are: Pindyck and Rubinfeld 'Microeconomics' (Pearson) and Mankiw 'Macroeconomics' (Palgrave). Learning-by-doing, through problem solving and project work, are an important ingredient of the course, with regular on-line tests to reinforce an active approach to learning.
