Our MSc Economics degree has been designed to give you an in-depth understanding of economic concepts, principles and techniques by focusing on the application of economics to contemporary real-world issues. You will be encouraged to ‘think like an economist’ through the application of economic ideas and methods drawn from a range of alternative perspectives. By studying economics here, the focus will be on application and the development of critical thinking.

You’ll learn how to apply advanced economic concepts and techniques to a range of contemporary issues, many of which directly impact on our daily lives. We aim to develop your understanding of a range of theories and tools, and you’ll critique their use in helping to understand important issues of the day. You’ll have the opportunity to work hands-on with economic tools and techniques, including the use of our state-of the-art Business Lab.
