Course summary

Introducing MA Economics and Sociology:

This combined programme provides a natural combination of two core social science disciplines.

The differing perspectives and methods of economics and sociology provide a potentially rich source of creative tensions, which will expand upon your understanding of the socio-economy.

More specific areas of common interest, linked to recent research, include networks, trust, cooperation, social capital, poverty, unemployment and distribution.

Study abroad:

The School of Economics exchange programme offers opportunities to study in Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, USA, Canada, Argentina, Mexico and within Europe (Erasmus).

Career opportunities:

Our graduates are highly regarded by employers.

The skills you develop will equip you for careers in accountancy, business, management and consultancy, or for work in aid agencies, not-for-profit organisations or government departments.

Many graduates have entered the finance sector and some large financial firms actively recruit Edinburgh graduates.
