Content

The MSc in Economics provides advanced, rigorous training in essential elements of economics – microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics – plus a range of specialist options covering theoretical and empirical approaches that reflect the interests of the staff in the School.

You will learn the theoretical and empirical tools required to understand the increasingly complex and rapidly changing economy. The programme focus is to provide a self-contained, rigorous but relevant learning experience that prepares you either to start employment at a senior level in a wide variety of economics-related activities, or to pursue further research.

You can exit after semester 2 with PgDip Economics.

Entry Requirements

A 2.1 degree classification from a recognised UK university in Economics or a 2.1 joint Honours in Economics and another subject that includes substantial training in mathematics, statistics, microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics.
