Methods of Learning

The entire MA involves 140 hours of taught sessions, all of which are taught as interactive sessions involving activities and discussions. This means students will typically attend classes for six hours per week if studying full time, although this may vary depending on the modules taken. In addition full-time students will be expected to undertake a further 24 hours per week of private study and research. Part-time students taking the course over three years will be expected to do one third of this. You should however be aware that this is not consistently spread across the year and that at some points you may be working considerably more hours in a week. There will also be the chance to attend additional optional sessions and presentations connected to the research undertaken at the Faculty of Education and Humanities.

Assessments

The course assessment involves essays, portfolios, presentations, practical projects and small scale studies. Students will complete their final Dissertation or Research Thesis on a topic negotiated with a tutor.

Careers

Typical career opportunities for MA graduates in the field include leadership roles in schools, lecturing in further and higher education, research in the field of mathematics education and policy development in the field of mathematics education.

-Are you interested in how applied and policy-oriented research of economic data has relevance for real-world economists?
-Are you focused on a career after your masters or would like to meet the entry requirements of our more advanced MSc in Economics?

Manchester is a leading centre for economics and research-led teaching. Graduate students from across the globe come to study economics at Manchester, attracted by its first-class postgraduate training and supervision in the core and specialist areas of economics.

Many famous names from the world of economics have worked here at Manchester, including three Nobel Prize winners. Interdisciplinary study is also actively pursued here with many course units involving a number of different Schools at the university.

The Economics MA course is designed to meet the growing demand for those students who seek a degree that combines a solid training in microeconomic and macroeconomic principles with quantitative methods and research informed applied economics units.

This course is clearly different from the existing MSc Economics courses at Manchester because of its focus on mainstream but less theoretical units that need to be completed.

Students who choose the Economics MA will take compulsory courses in both Microeconomics and Macroeconomics; they will further advance their quantitative skills and techniques in the core courses in Introduction to Econometrics, Mathematical Methods in Economic Analysis and Further Econometrics; and, as part of their MA dissertation, they will focus on applied and/or policy-oriented research of economic data as relevant to policy makers and economics professionals.

The programme suits students who are interested in a career straight after the MA and not those students interested in postgraduate research. The latter group may find our MSc Economics more appropriate.

Aims

-Provide instruction and rigorous training in economics and the relevant methods of mathematical economics and econometrics research in this area
-Develop your powers of inquiry, critical analysis and logical thinking, and your ability to apply theoretical knowledge to current issues of policy and practice in economics
-Encourage initiative, independent learning, awareness of analytical and theoretical approaches in the field of economics, exposure to recent research and the state-of-the-art tools in applied work in economics
-Train you in research methods and core skills in microeconomics, macroeconomics, econometrics, mathematical economics, problem-solving, written and oral expression, communication and presentation skills
-Equip you with the intellectual apparatus and practical skills necessary for an economist working in private or public organisations
-Enable you to apply advanced research skills to a relevant research area either in economics, via course units and a dissertation

Career opportunities

The demand for economists continues to grow worldwide. This demand exists across a host of institutions ranging from the public sector (like universities, central banks, international organisations) to the private sector (commercial banks and insurance providers).
With the range of applied economics skills provided in the MA Economics students are perfectly place to seek a career in business and place themselves ahead of competition. At the same time this degree is ideal for students who seek further education via MSc-research degrees across the UK and the world
