The ESRC recognised MSc Economics aims to provide students with a thorough knowledge and understanding of the concepts, tools and methods of modern economics, together with the application of these methods to the analysis of economic problems.
Introducing your course
Are you fascinated by the constant regulatory failure in the real economy? Apply for the Masters in Economics course at the University of Southampton and study economic theory and econometric methods to evaluate economic policy. This Masters in Economics degree is recognised by the ESRC, and will train you in a wide range of economic topics, culminating in a dissertation on a subject within this area of your choosing.
The full-time programme lasts 12 months, with nine months of taught modules between October and June of the academic year, followed by three summer months of supervised research for a Masters’ dissertation.
Part-time programme lasts 27 months and consists of the same components as the full-time version. Students consult with the Head of Masters to establish a detailed plan of studies to fulfil the programme requirements.
You can expect to enjoy predominantly small-group teaching and a considerable degree of individual attention from members of staff. MSc students are strongly encouraged to attend our seminars and research workshops. Our MSc students usually form a lively and cohesive group which plays an active role in the Division's academic and social life.
