Course content

The 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. You will receive intensive research-led training in advanced economic theory, econometrics and research methods.

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. UEA is one of a very small number of economics departments in the UK equipped to carry out such work. You will also benefit from research on behavioural consumers conducted in the Centre for Competition Policy (CCP) – working at the forefront of policy debates in competition economics at international level, with senior advisory links with the European Commission, and the UK Competition and Markets Authority.
