Masters study type: Full time Masters study type: Part time

Overview:


The MSc Economics combines the academic study of theoretical and quantitative subjects, with the option of studying specialist subject areas. The aims of both programmes are to develop:

- an advanced training in the analysis of economic problems and policy of use in private and public sector employment - It is anticipated that most students will want to complete the MSc: "An MSc in economics has effectively become a professional qualification" (Machin and Oswald, 2000:F347, Economic Journal);
- a knowledge of modern economic theory that is especially relevant to major applied economic areas;
- a knowledge of quantitative methods beyond the undergraduate level so that they will have mathematical, statistical and econometric skills to enable them to carry out quantitative analyses of economic problems;
- a research training in economics and its application enabling them to continue on to doctoral work should they so choose;
- a critical appreciation of existing applications of economic theory in policy choices and conflicts;
- builds on current, ongoing research activities within the department - see research by area

The programme was designed for those students who either already have, or who wish to pursue, careers as: economists in general and those seeking an academic career; staff of international organisations and national governments working in economic analysis and policy roles, and; economists or managers in private sector business organisations (including the financial services sector).

Core units:
