Course content

Northumbria’s MSc Economics and Sustainability is suitable for those who have a background in economics, as well as those who don’t have a background in economics but wish to follow a career in the field of environmental economics.

Whether you are looking to further specialise and build on previous economic knowledge, or change direction into a new area, studying economics together with sustainability is an emerging field, and one which has excellent employment prospects.

As governments around the world begin to prioritise de-carbonisation and more environmentally friendly ways of meeting their population’s needs, economics is becoming ever more important to environmental policy makers.

When you choose to study Northumbria’s MSc Economics and Sustainability you will get pioneering training in economics and policies for sustainability and climate change, as well as a thorough grounding in both resource and environmental economics.

In the second year of this programme you will study in another country. Choosing to study abroad can increase your international awareness, cross-cultural understanding and potentially make you more attractive to employers, as well as being a valuable life experience.

Demand is growing in the environmental sector for well-trained economics graduates, and our MSc Economics and Sustainability is specially designed to prepare students for specialist careers in government, international organisations, industry, NGOs and consultancy, in addition to the possibility of continuing on an academic path and pursuing a research career.

The course combines the very latest theory and sustainability strategies with contemporary economics, giving students the change to explore the fields of Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, Econometrics and Environmental Economics.

As well as gaining a detailed understanding of economics and sustainability issues, you will learn how to apply theory to real world problems and graduate with a solid set of specialist and transferable skills which will set you apart.
