This programme will provide you with a thorough training in the core areas of microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics. At Surrey, we produce MSc graduates who are not only well-trained technically in these areas, but also possess the ability to bring their analytical strengths to bear on applied issues.

Our MSc in Economics includes training in research methodology, which will help you to develop the skills needed to undertake independent research in economics. The dissertation provides the opportunity to use these skills under individual supervision by an academic.

The range of elective modules allows you to tailor your education according to your own particular interests or career aspirations. Including topics as varied as energy economics, financial theory, and the economics of human resources, these modules encapsulate the broad range of academic expertise within the School.
