Months of entry
The School of Economics aims to influence public policy through research and teaching. Energy economics, health economics and the economics of education, for example, play a vital role in public policy and are areas in which our academics have particular expertise.
This programme will ensure you graduate with a strong appreciation of macroeconomics, microeconomics and econometrics, in addition to specialist knowledge on public policy.
You will learn how microeconomic analysis can help us to understand diverse issues such as public goods, regulation, development and family policy; and develop an ability to select appropriate techniques to evaluate policy interventions.
