Economics is an optional subject, taught to Senior Cycle students in the school. Students at Junior Cycle receive a grounding in the more basic economic concepts in their Business Studies course.

Economics is a social science and deals with the allocation of scarce resources in the world. The Leaving Certificate course aims to give students a thorough understanding of micro and macroeconomics as well as a general overview of the history of economic thought. The syllabus aims to lead to the pursuit of economics as a course in Third Level.

The current economic climate and the generous choice of questions made available in the Leaving Certificate examination, accounts for the popularity of Economics at Post-Junior Certificate.

Students are strongly encouraged to attain an interest in ‘real world’ economic activity and this is augmented by our daily economics blog (, which is specifically geared towards students of economics in St. Muredach’s.
