Explore the interesting intersection of psychology and economics. You’ll gain a deep, well-rounded understanding of human behaviour and learn how to predict it.

This MSc enables you to delve deeply into the two inter-related disciplines of psychology and economics, in order to better explore, understand and predict the decisions people make.

Combining economic modelling with what psychology can tell us about individual behaviour and emotions you’ll learn to create highly accurate models for predicting human behaviour, which can then be used to empower behaviour change at both a micro and macro level.

This course is ideal if you are seeking to work in any area where understanding human decision-making is critical. This ranges from industry and healthcare, to developing new technologies or policies, and beyond.

The course has been designed from a truly interdisciplinary perspective, bringing together specialist teaching and expertise from both the Department of Psychology and Department of Economics.

You’ll work with expert, research-active, staff who’ll collaborate to deliver the content, give you exposure to the latest issues and trends, and links with employers, and ensure you gain the interdisciplinary insights that will set you apart in the jobs market.

You will leave this course with:

  • a deep, interdisciplinary, understanding of the psychological and economic science affecting human factors in decision-making
  • a thorough understanding of the modelling of human decision-making and the ability to integrate psychological science with this to create enriched models of choice behaviour
  • the ability to develop powerfully-predictive behavioural models based on a strong bedrock of theory from both psychology and economics
  • the ability to use models to deliver valid conclusions

This course is highly relevant if you have an economics or psychology background, or come from a background where modelling or understanding human behaviour is a key component, such as engineering or sociology.

Graduate prospects

Graduates with this level of interdisciplinary knowledge and skills are in high demand among employers, so you will be well placed to gain work in any field where a deep understanding of human behaviour is critical.

You could take your skills into government, banking or finance, healthcare, the third sector, economic regulation, human resources or executive management.

You could also take your studies further to doctoral level.

Course structure

This course lasts 1 year. Occasionally we make changes to our programmes in response to, for example, feedback from students, developments in research and the field of studies, and the requirements of accrediting bodies. You will be advised of any significant changes to the advertised programme, in accordance with our Terms and Conditions.

About the programme

In addition to being a science in its own right, mathematics plays a fundamental role in the quantitative areas of practically all other academic disciplines, particularly in the natural sciences, engineering, business administration, economics, medicine and psychology. Mathematical results permeate nearly all facets of life and are a necessary prerequisite for the vast majority of modern technologies – and as our IT systems become increasingly powerful, we are able to mathematically handle enormous amounts of data and solve ever more complex problems.

Special emphasis is placed on developing students' ability to formalise given problems in a way that facilitates algorithmic processing as well as enabling them to choose or develop, and subsequently apply, suitable algorithms to solve problems in an appropriate manner. The degree programme is theoretical in its orientation, with strongly application-oriented components. Studying this programme, you can gain advanced knowledge in the mathematical areas of Cryptography, Computer Algebra, Algorithmic Algebra and Geometry, Image and Signals Processing, Statistics and Stochastic Simulation, Dynamical Systems and Control Theory as well as expert knowledge in Computer Science fields such as Data Management, Machine Learning and Data Mining.

Furthermore, you will have the chance to learn how to apply your knowledge to tackle problems in areas as diverse as Marketing, Predictive Analytics, Computational Finance, Digital Humanities, IT Security and Robotics.

Programme syllabus

The core modules consist of two mathematics seminars and the presentation of your master's thesis.The compulsory elective modules are divided into eight module groups:

1)   Algebra, Geometry and Cryptography

This module group imparts advanced results in the areas of algebra and geometry, which constitute the fundament for algorithmic calculations, particularly in cryptography but also in many other mathematical areas.

2)   Mathematical Logic and Discrete Mathematics

The theoretical possibilities and limitations of algorithm-based solutions are treated in this module group.

3)   Analysis, Numerics and Approximation Theory

Methods from the fields of mathematical analysis, applied harmonic analysis and approximation theory for modelling and approximating continuous and discrete data and systems as well as efficient numerical implementation and evaluation of these methods are the scope of this module group.

4) Dynamical Systems and Optimisation

Dynamical systems theory deals with the description of change over time. This module group is concerned with methods used for the modelling, analysis, optimisation and design of dynamical systems, as well as the numerical implementation of such techniques.

5) Stochastics, Statistics

This module group deals with methods for modelling and analysing complex random phenomena as well as the construction, analysis and optimisation of stochastic algorithms and techniques used in statistical data analysis.

6) Data Analysis and Data Management and Programming

This module group examines the core methods used in computer science for the analysis of data of heterogeneous modalities (e.g. multimedia data, social networks and sensor data) and for the realisation of data analysis systems.

7) Applications

In this module group, you will practise applying the mathematical methods learned in module groups 1 to 6 to real-world applications such as Marketing, Predictive Analytics and Computational Finance.

8) Key Competencies and Language Training

In this module group, you will choose seminars that develop your non-subject-specific skills, such as public speaking and academic writing and other soft skills; you may also undertake internships. This serves to complement your technical expertise gained during your degree studies and helps to prepare you for your professional life after university.

Overview

This course is still accepting applications for September 2018 entry

According to UN forecasts, by 2030 urban areas are projected to house 5 billion people globally (60 per cent of total population) and 662 cities will have at least 1 million residents.

Our Urban Informatics MSc is designed for students who want to play a part in influencing the future of these growing cities and the wellbeing of their citizens. It will equip students to capture and use the rich behavioural data increasingly available from cities and citizens themselves.

Using London as a lab, it will use detailed case studies to equip students with the technical skills required to conduct effective urban data analysis, and then to communicate results to effect change.

This course is suitable for students with a computation or statistical background, or geography with a computational component.

Features

  • Draws from both natural and social science areas to provide a rounded degree that combines the technical and social aspects of urban informatics.
  • Based in the Centre for Urban Science and Progress London (CUSP London), with connections to New York University and CUSP New York.
  • Located in central London, with opportunities to interact with government agencies and for grounded case studies using London as a lab to drive effective learning.
  • Friendly and supportive learning environment, with students from across the globe.
  • Based in the Faculty of Natural and Mathematical Sciences, with links to both Health and Social Science and Public Policy and world-leading teaching and research.

Course details

The first term provides foundation modules in core data science techniques, the theories underlying the study of cities, and ways to communicate analyses so as to affect policy-making. The second term focuses on data analysis for cities, providing insight into both spatial and network analysis as well as providing more depth on data mining techniques.

In term two you will also take a specialised module exploring one aspect of city life, such as air pollution or mental health, in real depth and detail. This provides a testbed for the analysis techniques learnt, enabling students to develop confidence and experience with handling urban data. In the summer term you will also engage in a substantive individual project – connected to our research interests – tackling one of a range of urban informatics topics.
