This program provides rigorous training in the economics of international finance, trade, and development for students interested in demanding professional careers and doctoral programs.

Program description

What can be done to avoid financial crises? How can growth in the least developed countries be accelerated? How can wealth be distributed equitably and sustainably? This program will allow students to acquire a thorough knowledge of the conceptual and empirical tools of modern Economics applied to international trade, finance, and development.

Tailor your program to fit your interests and goals

The program starts in the first term with a set of courses on economic growth and development, international trade and finance, and quantitative methods. In the second and third terms, students can choose from a wide array of courses and tailor their learning experience to their interests. Some students chose to specialize in development, others in international trade and finance, while others opt instead for a more balanced approach that combines training in both areas.

Students complete an independent study project by the end of the academic year, allowing them to specialize in a policy topic of their choice. They also attend a series of policy lessons delivered by international experts.

Study with experts from academia and international organizations

The master's faculty consists of internationally renowned scholars who have previously held academic positions at MIT, NYU, Chicago, Berkeley, Stanford and Cambridge. They have also worked or held consulting appointments at international organizations, including the World Bank, the IMF, the Inter-American Development Bank, and the European Central Bank.


Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive a Master Degree in Specialized Economic Analysis awarded jointly with the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and the Universitat Pompeu Fabra. The degree requires the successful completion of 60 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) credits of graduate courses (6 credits are equivalent to a 40 hour course), some compulsory and some elective. The students' final program must be discussed with and approved by the Master Director.

This intense course focuses on the molecular and genetic factors of human diseases. Understanding those factors is crucial to the development of therapies.

After you've completed the non-clinical elements of the MSc in Molecular Medicine, you’ll spend 20 weeks with a clinical team, working on a particular health or disease area.

You could work primarily with either a clinical research team or a clinical practice team – depending on your preferred choice and the availability of attachments.

The course will give you a critical understanding of how molecular medicine is being applied to real problems in a particular clinical area. It is assessed mainly through written coursework and dissertations.

Core modules

From Genome to Gene Function
Human Gene Bioinformatics
Human Disease Genetics
Modulating Immunity
Literature Review
Laboratory Techniques
Clinical Attachment Presentation Module

Examples of optional modules

A wide choice of pathways (related to the field of your clinical attachment) which includes:

Virulence Mechanisms of Viruses and Fungi (Microbes and Infection)
Molecular and Cellular Basis of Diseases (Experimental Medicine)
Vascular Cell Biology (Cardiovasular)
The Molecular Basis of Tumorigenesis and Metastasis (Cancer)
Modelling Protein Interactions (Genetic Mechanisms)

Special options for the clinical attachment are:

Clinical Attachment
Clinical Research Project

New for 2018/19, the MSc in Biosocial Medical Anthropology is for those wishing to gain proficiency and understanding of biosocial approaches in examining disease, health and medicine. It draws from cross-disciplinary expertise in medical anthropology, human ecology and environment, and biological anthropology. It aims to equips students with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills to develop careers that engage with and make use of a biosocial approach.


About this degree

There are two pathways, A: 'Statistic Training Pathway' (for those without statistics training), or B: 'Open Pathway' (for those with demonstrable statistics training e.g. at A level or equivalent).

The programme consists of a core course (30 credits), one or two core modules (15 to 30 credits), two to three optional modules (30 to 45 credits), and a dissertation (90 credits).

Core modules

Biosocial Medical Anthropology (two term module)

Anthropological Methods

Introduction to Statistics (compulsory if no statistics training)


Optional modules

Medical Anthropology

Aspects of Applied Medical Anthropology

Ecology of Human Groups

Population and Development

Evolution of Human Brain, Cognition and Language

Statistics and Causal Analysis for Qualitative Social Scientists

Anthropologies of Science, Society and Biomedicine

Reproduction, Sex and Sexuality

Human Behavioural Ecology

Anthropology and Psychiatry



All MSc students undertake an independent research project which culminates in a dissertation of 15,000 words.

Further information on modules and degree structure is available on the department website: Biosocial Medical Anthropology.


Teaching and learning

Seminars, lectures and tutorials form a core part of the learning approach. Students will be encouraged to develop critical and independent thinking and to be able to engage and make use of cross-disciplinary perspectives on the biosocial topics related to health, medicine and disease. Assessment is through examination, essays, dissertation and optional module requirements.

Biosocial medical anthropology is a new and cutting-edge interdisciplinary approach that will equip students with the skills to think critically and engage with the biosocial contexts of health, disease and medicine. We expect graduates of this programme to be able to develop careers in academia, clinical research, public health, government and non-governmental organisations.



This programme will equip students for careers in research related to biosocial approaches to health, disease and illness and also for working across a wide range of health care arenas including public and global health, international development.

Why study this degree at UCL?

UCL Anthropology was the first in the UK to integrate biological and social anthropology with material culture into a broad-based conception of the discipline. It is one of the largest anthropology departments in the UK in terms of both staff and research student numbers, offering an exceptional breadth of expertise.

Our excellent results in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise and 2014 Research Excellence Framework show that we are the leading broad-based anthropology department in the UK.

Students are encouraged to take full advantage of the wider anthropological community in London and the department's strong links with European universities and international institutions.
