Course content

Behavioural and Economic Science (Economics) MSc is designed for students with an Economics degree. Warwick's Economics department, ranked 3rd in the UK (The Complete University Guide 2022) and 25th the World (The QS World University Subject Rankings 2021), offers you a programme examining theoretical and real-world applications of decision science and behavioural economics.

This course will be open for applications from 1st December 2021.

This course emphasises both theoretical foundations and real-world application in core and advanced areas of behavioural economics, and the cognitive science of judgement and decision making. It is for you if you intend to work in a business environment (e.g. consumer-led industries and the financial sector), and if you are concerned with public policy and its implementation.

It also provides an excellent foundation if you are intending to undertake further postgraduate research. A 20,000-word written project report provides an opportunity to explore your own interests across these fields of study.

The Economics variant of the course is designed for students with a first degree in Economics. A Science track variant of the course is offered by the Department of PsychologyLink opens in a new window and is available if you have a first degree in Science.

You will be automatically enrolled on a pre-sessional Mathematics and Statistics programme to equip you with the relevant methodological skills you need to succeed on the course.
