Course summary

Introducing MA Economics

Economics is the study of the incentives that shape and reconcile the decisions that individuals, businesses, governments and societies make, and the macroeconomic outcomes such as economic fluctuations, growth, unemployment and crises, which may arise from those decisions.

How will I learn?

Courses are taught through a combination of lectures, seminars, tutorials, workshops and web-based learning.

The Economics Help Desk offers students help and support throughout their programme. The peer assisted learning scheme, EconPALS, aims to help first year students develop their learning and study strategies.

How will I be assessed?

You will be assessed by exams and coursework, including problems sets, essays, and project reports, and presentations. In Year 4 you will complete an honours dissertation.

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.
