Anyone considering this job should be ready to work thoughtfully rather than reactively. Also they should be emotionally present and ready to facilitate meaningful conversation.

The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

This is a follow on option from LM124 Mathematical Sciences (Common Entry)

Economics is a social science which studies the distribution of resources in society, in the form of goods, services, and labour. It covers topics such as how goods are priced, how banks function, and how consumers behave in different markets.

The course is full time over four years. In the first two years of the programme, students are introduced to the principles of macro - and microeconomics, calculus, and statistics. The final two years of the programme concentrate on the development of skills in mathematical modelling, statistical analysis and econometrics and their application to a range of problems in economics. The second semester of Year 3 is spent on a Cooperative Education placement. You will gain experience in a working environment which requires the skills that you will have developed during your studies.
