The. MA Communicating Economic Policy. programme is an exciting mix of. economic policy. and the. communication of economic knowledg. Read more

The MA Communicating Economic Policy programme is an exciting mix of economic policy and the communication of economic knowledge. Economic arguments are central to political decision-making, and the most effective economic analysts are not only able to understand the technical detail, but can also engage in meaningful conversation about economic matters with both economists and the general public.

This Master’s programme can be completed in one year (full-time), or stretched over two years (part-time). International students who require a visa are only eligible to study this programme on a one-year, full-time basis.

Summary

The MA Communicating Economic Policy programme has three main strands: economic policy, which equips you with an understanding of the conceptual tools of an economist; research skills, which teaches you the skills required to handle quantitative data, offers a grounding in qualitative research skills, and prepares you to undertake the entire production process of independent research; and economic communication, which invites you to reflect on what the field of economics can achieve, what its limitations are, and how these can be communicated to non- expert audiences.

Structure

The MA Communicating Economic Policy comprises ten core courses studied full-time across a single academic year, or part-time over two academic years.

The courses comprise: Microeconomic Principles, Public & Industrial Economic Policy, Communication & Public Understanding of Economics, Statistics & Quantitive Research Skills, Macroeconomic Principles, International Economic Policy, The Making & Communication of Economic Knowledge, Research Design & Data Collection, and Ethics & Evaluation of Communication, plus Dissertation and lay summary article.

Teaching

The MA Communicating Economic Policy will be delivered predominantly through seminars, of no more than 10 people, and individual tutorials.

Students who are enrolled full-time should anticipate devoting approximately 35-40 hours per week to their studies for the duration of their degree. In Michaelmas and Hilary terms, this will include approximately six to seven formal contact hours per week, with the remainder consisting of structured independent study.

Independent study primarily comprises preparing both formative and summative work, though it may also include participation in History Society meetings, History Research seminars, and professorial lectures. In Trinity term, students predominantly work independently to write their dissertations.

Part-time students will, on average, devote half as much time to their studies over a period lasting twice as long.

Assessment

Summative assessment for the MA Communicating Economic Policy will be by a range of essays, a portfolio, a computer based project, seminar presentations, research proposal and examination. Students will also be assessed on a dissertation approximately 15,000 words including a lay summary article of approximately 1,000 words.

Timetables

Timetables are usually made available to students during Freshers’ Week. Teaching can be scheduled to take place during any day of the week. However, when possible, Wednesday afternoons are usually reserved for sports and cultural activities.

Your qualification

NCH degrees are designed and created by the College’s professors and faculty. The courses reflect their areas of expertise and research interests, meaning that they are strongly engaged with the material that they will teach you, and there may be opportunities for students to participate in active research.

The New College of the Humanities MA Communicating Economic Policy degree programme is validated by Swansea University as being of an appropriate standard and quality and will lead to the Swansea University award of a Master of Science (MA).

The MA Philosophy provides a rigorous and wide-ranging programme relevant to those entering formal philosophical study as graduates of other disciplines and to philosophy graduates seeking to consolidate and expand their studies.

The MA Philosophy at NCH London engages students with classic and contemporary texts and debates on key topics in theoretical and practical philosophy. It provides excellent preparation for PhD studies.

This Master’s programme can be completed in one year (full-time), or stretched over two years (part-time). International students who require a visa are only eligible to study this programme on a one-year, full-time basis.

Structure

Each student completes the compulsory ‘Mind and Reality’ course (20 credits) and the compulsory ‘Values and Society’ course (20 credits), takes a selection of 20-credit optional courses (for a total of 80 credits), and writes a Dissertation (60 credits).

The compulsory courses are designed to engage students with classic philosophy texts and debates and to develop in them the research, speaking, and writing skills that underpin a career in the philosophy profession and (more generally) support an informed, reflective and thoughtful approach to life. Each optional course surveys a different area of philosophy, with students encouraged to specialise further within each course through choice from assignment topics and support through associated individual tutorials.

The structured dissertation provides an opportunity for an extended piece of research on a topic of the student’s choice culminating in a 10,000- to 15,000-word dissertation.

Teaching & learning

The MA Philosophy will be delivered predominantly through seminars, of five to 15 students, and individual tutorials.

Students who are enrolled full-time should anticipate devoting approximately 35-40 hours per week to their studies for the duration of their degree. In Michaelmas and Hilary terms, this will include approximately six to seven formal contact hours per week, with the remainder consisting of structured independent study.

Independent study primarily comprises preparing both formative and summative work, though it may also include participation in Philosophy Society meetings, Philosophy Research seminars, and professorial lectures. In Trinity term, students predominantly work independently to write their dissertations.

Assessment

Summative assessment for the MA Philosophy will be by a range of essays and seminar presentations; assessment of some courses may include an exam. Students will also be assessed on a dissertation of 10,000 – 15,000- words.
