Masters degree in Economic History offer advanced study of the growth and development of various economies – and economic practices – throughout history. In some cases, they also include the study of industrialisationtopics such as Numismatics (currencies and coinage) or theories and processes such as Capitalism and Marxism.
Related subjects include Social History and World History. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree, such as Economics, History or Business Studies.
And understanding of the world’s economies offers great insight into many of the institutions, organisations and corporations which are a part of day-to-day life across the world.
Studies in the History of Economics typically take an interdisciplinary approach, combining theory and methodology from Anthropology, History, Economics, Business Studies, Communications and Culture.
Economic History includes an analysis of topics such as demographics, labour markets, finance and even gender studies. For example, you might explore how the development of the silk trade, or Silk Road, opened huge terrestrial and maritime travel networks and influenced migration patterns by connecting the East and West in the 2nd century BC.
Careers in this field are highly varied, and may include financial forecasting for organisations in the public and private sector. They may also include roles in public policy and foreign affairs.
