As part of the ongoing development of Why Study Economics and Studying Economics, we are now looking for student contributors. Because the websites are aimed at Economics applicants and students respectively, we think it is very important for us to have students’ views reflected in our content.
The content provided can be in any format about anything related to Economics: current affairs and politics to day-to-day activities, such as analysis of economic concepts in movies and music. We also encourage entries about the social life of Economics students. Most entries will go to Economics in Action blog, but there is a possibility to write a material for other sections of the websites.
Being a contributor for us will be beneficial for you in many ways. Firstly, if you want to pursue journalism, this is a great way to start. The websites are very popular with lecturers and students, so you will have an audience. If you become a frequent contributor, we will make sure your name appears on the websites, and this will look great on your CVs. Finally, writing something contemporary and interesting will widen your views about Economics as well as distract you from all the maths you have to do for your course.
If you are interested, please email Anh with your details and a possible entry. We can also discuss what sort of material you would want to write or feel comfortable writing.
