Other Modules

SMI102 - Economy, Society and Public Policy

This module has been created specifically for social science students who are NOT economists, but who want to understand how the economy works, and how it can be made to work better.

The module will give you an understanding of the ways in which we can interpret the evidence on the social and economic issues of today, and formulate appropriate public policy interventions. We emphasise issues of power, social norms, fairness, institutions, etc, and illustrate throughout with real-world data.

This module is optional but available to all students on all programmes at level 1.
