about US

Discover Economics is a campaign led by the Royal Economic Society which aims to:

  • broaden the appeal of economics to potential students

  • change their perceptions of economics and economists

  • attract more students from under-represented groups (women, state school/further education college students and ethnic minorities).

 

The campaign targets 15-17 year olds – young people who are making choices about what post 16 qualifications to take and what subjects to study at university. We work to transform perceptions of economics among students, particularly those attending schools which don't provide it as a subject. We also work to raise the voices of a more diverse set of economists and expose students to role models already working in the subject.
