Economics is at the core of Global Sustainable Development (GSD). You’ll critically analyse economic models and theories of sustainable development through quantitative and qualitative approaches. Economics modules will provide you with an essential background in micro and macro economics, as well as methodologies for statistical analysis. Meanwhile, your studies in GSD will empower you to consider the human and environmental implications of development. You’ll be posing challenging questions about climate change, biodiversity, gender equality, and other core components of sustainability. Put together, Economics and GSD encourages you to take a new perspective on our changing global economy.
