Course content

MSc Global Media Economics 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 wishing to develop specialist expertise in this area without committing to full research training.

You will gain a firm foundation in your subject through core compulsory taught modules in Economic Concepts, Econometrics, Economics of the Mass Media, Politics and Media, and International Trade. You'll then be able to tailor your course with an optional module and your dissertation, which you'll write towards the end of your 12 months with us. You will be able to choose your own dissertation topic from within the area of media economics, and you'll benefit from supervision and support 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 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.
