Months of entry
MSc Behavioural and Experimental Economics is a specialist research-training course in a rapidly expanding field of enquiry in which there are many important areas of theoretical dispute between economists. Academics who teach this course include some world-leading experimental economists.
If you choose to take this course you will benefit from the work undertaken at our Centre for Behavioural and Experimental Social Science (CBESS), whose computerised laboratory is dedicated to teaching and research in behavioural and experimental economics. The University is one of a very small number of economics departments in the UK equipped to carry out such work.
MSc Behavioural and Experimental Economics fits into our Academic and Professional Programme and is designed to provide intensive research-led training in advanced economic theory, econometrics and research methods, as well as a particular speciality. It is suitable for those with a good undergraduate degree (equivalent to 2:1 or 1st) that contains a substantial component of economics or who have a Graduate Diploma in Economics.
This course is ideal for those who aim to gain employment as professional economists in government, financial institutions, business, commerce, industry, international agencies and other similar organisations. It is also suitable for those seeking eventual PhD enrolment and/or an academic career as a lecturer in Economics. Many of our former PhD students now hold academic posts as lecturers in University departments both in the UK and overseas.
