Course content

MSc Economics and International Relations is part of our Applied Training Programme, which is designed to provide key skills in economics. It’s ideal if you’re a graduate without an economics background, yet wish to develop the analytical skills of an economist. It's also suitable if you're an economics graduate and wish to develop specialist expertise in this area without committing to full research training.

The compulsory component of the degree consists of taught modules in Economic Concepts, Econometric Methods, International Relations Theory, and International Trade. In addition to these, you'll choose options from a range of modules including International Finance, Multinational Firms and Environmental and Natural Resource Economics.

Towards the end of your 12 months with us you'll write a dissertation on an area of the discipline that supports your own interests and future goals. Throughout the dissertation process, you will have support and supervision from 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 includes 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.
