Course Content

The MA in Economics is an intensive one-year programme. The first semester consists of two 6-week terms in which students take modules in the core areas
of Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Econometrics and Mathematics. All modules are a mixture of theory and practical application. Weekly seminars are run to supplement the learning experience.

In the second semester, students take further applied modules in Macroeconomics and Econometrics as well as two field courses. Field courses offered in any year may include Industrial Organisation, Growth and Development, International Trade, Labour Economics, or Financial Intermediation. Not every optional module will be offered every year. In this semester, students also develop a thesis proposal under the guidance of their supervisor. The thesis is submitted at the end of the summer.
