Course content

  • Gain insights stemming from the intersection of economics, social psychology and cognition
  • Statistical training to help you analyse and interpret data from experiments

Our MSc Economics programmes are intended to deepen your knowledge and understanding of economics as an academic discipline. Our programmes are designed to be flexible so that you will get the most intellectual return, whether you studied economics as the principal focus of your undergraduate degree, or if economics were a minor part of a quantitatively-focussed degree.

This programme combines the intellectual rigour of a standard MSc in Economics with insights stemming from the intersection of economics, social psychology and cognition.

Providing the quantitative training of standard microeconomics, this programme offers a thorough grounding in the research methodology behind experimental economics. It also provides the statistical training required to analyse and interpret data from experiments.

This specialised course delves into individual choice, behavioural economics and experimental economics which will take you from the standard models that underpin behavioural sciences, to the current developments in the field, be it applied to labour economics, behavioural finance or behavioural public finance.
