Hier vind je de beschrijvingen van de vakken in de minor. Meer inhoudelijke informatie over de minor vind je op www.minor.vu.nl.


What is the future of employment in the face of technical innovation?
Why does the discovery of natural resources make a country sometimes
poorer rather than richer? How can we keep the pension and health care
system sustainable if there are only half as many working age people?
Why do economic crises occur? These questions illustrate how economics
touches upon the most pressing problems of today: economic well-being,
inequality and sustainability. In the minor in Economics you will learn
to tackle economic issues by learning to think like an economist.

The minor in Economics is a 30 EC programme taught in English. You will
become familiar with the development of economic thought, including the
principles of micro- and macroeconomic theory and key insights from
empirical economic analysis. You will gain insight into the role of
economic policy, learning to identify when markets fail and when policy
interventions may provide solutions. Finally, you learn to take a
structured approach to solving practical problems using economic core
concepts. Upon completion you will have a proven ability to apply sound
economic reasoning to a range of issues on a micro- and macroeconomic
level, for example related to health, law, environment, finance, labor,
transport, and development.

Students in the BSc programmes Economics and Econometrics are excluded
from participating in this university minor.
