We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Socio-Economics focus on the ways in which sociology and economics intersect, examining how financial markets and monetary policy affect human behaviour (and vice versa). As such, they are interdisciplinary programmes where entry requirement may include an undergraduate degree in a relevant social science.
Related postgraduate specialisms include Behavioural & Experimental Economics, Social Policy and Economic Policy.
Socio-economic factors affect almost every aspect of our everyday life. As such, understanding how they work is essential for any number of disciplines and goals, from improving economic output and productivity through to reducing inequality and poverty.
A Masters in Socio-Economics will equip you with the tools to try and find solutions to these problems. You may study the interrelationship between economic growth and education policy, for example, or immigration and wage levels.
After finishing your course, there are a number of settings in which you could apply your knowledge of Socio-Economics. You might set the agenda with a think-tank or work on economic and social policy within government. Alternatively, you may find work with a non-governmental organisation (NGO) or charity.
