The Economics A Level course is designed to give you a better understanding of the world and most of the material will deal with contemporary issues.
The vast majority of students who choose to study Economics at Queen Mary’s College have not had the opportunity to study the subject before. However, Economics A Level consists of topics that you may have covered during your GCSEs such as Geography (trade and development), Business Studies (demand and markets), Science (the environment) and History (empires and the causes of wars). Economics may be combined with many other subjects. As Economics is a social science, Economics may complement the study of other social science/humanity subjects: many students benefit from combining Economics with Politics, Geography, Sociology and History.
Our team of Economics teachers have industry experience and specialist knowledge of employment to bring to the classroom. This will enhance your understanding of major topical issues and the ways in which businesses respond.
