MSc ECONOMICS

Full Time: 12 months | Part Time: 24 months
Start date: September 2020
Gain the fundamental tools of a professional economist with our MSc Economics.
On this course, you’ll learn how to assess a wide range of theoretical, empirical and policy-related economic issues.
You will work with academics from the Department of Economics, and your training will emphasise interactive and applied learning as you study a number of key areas. These include:
micro-principles of economic behaviour
macro-outcomes of national and global importance
combining methodological, theoretical and applied issues of prime relevance to the study and practice of economics and economic policy
building a strong working knowledge of current statistical software and other applications used in economic analysis, both in the public and private sectors.
We are one of the top 25 highest-ranking UK universities for Economics and Econometrics (QS World University Rankings by Subject, 2018), and our teaching is supported by our academics’ research. For example, many of our economists conduct applied research that influences economic policy formation at the local, national and international levels – and this work directly informs what you’ll study. This ensures that what you learn is topical, relevant and has practical implications.
