Course content

MSc 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 and are looking for intensive research-led training in advanced economic theory, econometrics and research methods. 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.

The core, compulsory component of the degree consists of taught modules in economic theory and econometrics. In addition to these, you can choose options from a range of modules including Behavioural and Experimental Economics, Finance, Industrial Organisation and Competition Economics, and Development Economics.

You'll also write a dissertation towards the end of your 12 months with us. You’re free to choose your own dissertation topic, and 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'll use in your MSc programme. While not compulsory, we strongly recommend you take advantage of this fantastic opportunity.
