Course content

The MSc Economics and International Economics is a high quality taught graduate course in economics which has ESRC recognition under its "1+3" awards system.

The course is designed to train you in the use of analytic and quantitative methods in examining economic issues, and to provide research training of the level required to proceed to a PhD programme in Economics.

The course specialises in international economics, while providing a solid basis in analytic economics.

You will be taught to apply and develop, via specialised modules in International Macroeconomics and International Trade Theory, the analytic and quantitative skills developed in the core courses, and to take further options in areas that will strengthen and augment those skills for examining international economic issues.

The content of the course is influenced by the research experience and activities of staff associated with the GEP and CREDIT research centre.
