The MSc programme aims to provide a modern and comprehensive training in Economics that will equip students to move directly into a career as a professional economist or to undertake research for a PhD.
You will take core subjects and three optional courses from a wide range of subject areas. These options cover virtually all the main research areas in modern economics and one usually forms the basis for the summer dissertation.
By the end of the programme you should be able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of:
* the core elements of microeconomic and macroeconomic theory and selected topics in applied macro/microeconomics;
* econometric methods for both timeseries and cross-sectional data analysis,enabling you to critically assess applied work and utilise standard econometric techniques in your own research;
* applications of core economic theory and analytical and quantitative techniques, together with further specific techniques and ongoing research activity relating to your chosen options.
* You will also develop a range of intellectual, practical and transferable skills particularly those of critical analysis and assessment.
All students are required to take the introductory Maths and Econometrics courses, the six compulsory core courses and three further courses to be chosen from the range of electives on offer. Students taking the MSc in Economics may choose three courses from across the range of options offered on the programme. Students taking the MSc in Economics (Finance) must take the courses in Asset Pricing, Corporate Finance and International Money and Finance as their three "option" courses".
The option courses are designed to familiarise students with the main elements of the relevant theory and to introduce students to a range of more advanced topics and recent developments in Economics. They also emphasise the problems that arise when making the transition from theoretical models to empirical and applied work and in this respect they are particular useful in formulating and writing the summer dissertation. By the end of the course students should be proficient in state-of-the-art analytical and quantitative techniques that are the essential skills of today's professional economist.
