The study of economics requires students to develop understanding of the changing domestic and international economic environments.
This is an academically challenging course where students study various issues including labour and financial markets, distribution of income within society and the impact of globalisation on economic policies.
Using a range of case studies and contemporary examples, students are required to analyse economic policies and understand the implications of contemporary economic issues.
The Preliminary course focuses on developing understanding of key economics concepts. Focus is placed on analysis of microeconomics policies and the relationships between the economic behaviour of consumers, business and governments within key markets.
The HSC course involves a deeper exploration of economic management and macroeconomic policies. Focus is placed on investigating the impact of the global economy in Australia and economic issues that can affect domestic policies.
