Why study Economics?

Transition Year students will soon be making their subject choice for next year.

So what is Economics?

Economics is an interesting and challenging subject that engages students and offers excellent prospects after graduation. Nearly every higher education institution offers economics, either as a single/joint honours course or as a subsidiary part of degrees as diverse as medicine and history.

You may have already completed a module this year on Economics but you can find out more about Economics as a subject for Leaving Certificate by going to the Why Study Economics website.

There you can read reviews of past and present students, take an online quiz and see what jobs economics graduates get.

You should also download and read the LC Economics Syllabus before making your choice.

    Economics is imperative if you want to get into business or investing. It touches people’s lives everyday and they don’t even realize. You have to manage your own retirement. It would really help if you have an idea of how the stock market works when you retirement counts on it.

    I agree with Dave, economics is the best subject to study.
