MSc in Behavioural and Economic Science (Science track)

Course Description

This innovative course in the growing area of behavioural science and behavioural economics combines multidisciplinary expertise from the Departments of Economics, Psychology and Warwick Business School. Warwick is one of the strongest places in the world to study behavioural science (flagged for excellence in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework), and one of the few to offer a truly interdisciplinary research and teaching team.

During the course you’ll focus on behavioural, experimental and neuroeconomics, decision-making and the principles of cognition. Methods explored include mathematical modelling of choice, agent-based simulation, econometrics and process-tracing methods (e.g. eye-tracking and brain-imaging).

You’ll also undertake a project, giving you the opportunity to collaborate with a team of researchers on live research projects. Past projects have included analysis of big data sets (e.g. Facebook profiles to large UK/US panel studies), large online experiments with thousands of participants, field experiments on consumer and economic behaviour, and laboratory studies of groups using economic games.

Our graduates continue to PhD research, or to work in the public and private sectors, applying behavioural science to public policy and business.

Science Track

The Science Track is intended for those with an undergraduate degree in science, or another quantitative subject. Students take a module in Behavioural Microeconomics in Term 1, which introduces classic microeconomics and the relationship to the new behavioural approach.
