Topics in Applied Macroeconomics

Module code: EC1021

This module will not only give you a greater insight into macroeconomic principles gained from Macroeconomics I but will also be a guide on understanding the nature of various transferable skills that can be used to support your career goals. You will build on your knowledge from Macroeconomics I by using analytical tools used by macroeconomists to find the solutions to a variety of problems. 

These empirically-motivated macroeconomic problems could arise from both historical and contemporary interests and will contain international components. You will have the chance to analyse these problems from a diverse range of perspectives and explore topics on international development and sustainability of resources. Upon analysis of key macroeconomic problems you will then communicate the results and further develop essential transferable skills.
