Economics at YARM SCHOOL

Course description

Knowledge of Economics is a sound preparation for citizenship as it includes a study of consumers and firms, money and interest rates and unemployment and inflation; much of the current political debate concerns economic issues. Students develop the knowledge and skills needed to understand and analyse data, think critically about issues and make informed decisions. They will also build upon their quantitative skills and appreciate that, when evaluating arguments, both qualitative and quantitative evidence are important. It provides a thorough intellectual training involving a wide range of academic skills. Economics can be effectively combined with many A levels or university courses. Examples include Maths and science subjects (Economics and Engineering, Economics and Maths), modern languages (Economics and French, Economics and German) for work in the ever expanding European Union, and social sciences (PPE, Economic History and Law courses).
