MSc in Economics & Public Policy

Course Description

MSc in Economics and Public Policy

Aims of the programme The Department and University have a prominent international reputation in public economics and in the use of economics in the design of social policy. This programme offers students a thorough foundation in the tools required to analyse aspects of public policy.
This programme is designed for:
*Those working in the public sector, public administration, government departments, the NHS, international agencies and elsewhere who wish to upgrade their existing skills by more exposure to up-to-date techniques and knowledge relevant to policy analysis in social and other public policy areas, and to public sector administration and financial management.

*Those who want to build on their existing degrees in economics by obtaining further knowledge and expertise in more specialised areas, such as health economics, social policy analysis and public finance, whilst maintaining a broad range of career options in government, the public sector, health or public administration, research and policy centres, and elsewhere.

*Those with a background in disciplines such as government, sociology, mathematics or natural sciences, but without a strong background in economics, who wish to develop their abilities in economics and related areas, with particular reference to the application of these skills in the fields of economic and social policy, administration and management.

Students who do not have a strong background in economics but who have other relevant qualifications or experience can take a Summer Session course in Economics and Quantitative Methods.
