Course content

Our MSc Behavioural and Experimental Economics is part of our Academic and Professional Programme – designed for people who want to pursue a career as a professional economist within government and industry or move into PhD study.

It’s ideal for you if you've already studied economics. You should have a good undergraduate degree (equivalent to a 2:1 or a 1st) with a substantial component of economics, or a graduate diploma in economics.

On this programme you will benefit from intensive research-led training in advanced economic theory, econometrics and research methods, as well as specialization in Behavioural and Experimental Economics. There are taught modules in Behavioural and Experimental Economics, Economic Theory and Econometrics, and a dissertation towards the end of the year.

Your dissertation gives you the freedom to choose your own topic from within the area of behavioural and experimental economics – enabling you to direct your studies based on your interests and your future goals. Throughout your dissertation you will be supported and supervised by a member of the School of Economics.

We also offer additional support to help you get the most from your Master’s. This includes an optional, intensive pre-sessional course in the fortnight before your programme begins in September. This course incorporates the techniques of calculus and matrix algebra and an introduction to the specialist econometric software that you will use in your MSc programme. While not compulsory, we strongly recommend you take advantage of this fantastic opportunity.
