Abstract: This paper presents the results of a survey of first year economics students at the University of Wollongong undertaken in 1995. The survey aimed to gauge student attitutdes towards economics as a discipline relative to other subjects taken within the Commerce degree. It was conducted in an attempt to identify causes for declining enrolments in economics in the 1990s, a phenomenon which has been identified recently inAustralian Universities as well as in the USA in the 1980s.
