The Australian Undergraduate Economics Degree: Results from a Survey of Students
This article reports the results of a large survey of Australian undergraduate economics students. The students were queried about their sociodemographic characteristics, reasons for selecting a university economics degree, university experience in learning economics, assessment of their university economics programs, and future education and career plans. They also assigned themselves expected grades on hypothetical examination questions in macroeconomics, macroeconomics, and economic statistics. The students rated their lectures and the rigor of their curriculum as the strengths of their degree. They were most disappointed about their training in writing essays, the course advising they received, and their instruction in problem solving. Copyright 1994 by The Economic Society of Australia.
